The Tiger Mountain Trail (TMT) is to Tiger Mountain what the Pacific Crest Trail is to the Cascades–a long, winding trail that crosses many summits and offers a long thru hike or short section hikes. This is the shortest, but possibly most scenic, of the main TMT sections. It’s an outstanding introduction to Tiger Mountain and its wonderful wildland trails.
