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.
From Issaquah head east on Front Street (which becomes Issaquah-Hobart Road after it leaves town). About 6 miles past the city limits, turn left (north) onto SE Tiger Mountain Road. Continue for 1 mile before parking on the left shoulder at a wide pullout. The trail is on the right.
