The Tiger Mountain Cable Line trail – there really is a cable line on this trail – is a notoriously steep trail from the parking lot at 400′ to the summit at 2500′ in about 1.7m. This cable line has various warning signs that it is rough, unmaintained, etc.
Naturally, this draws hikers like ants on a pear. It has five distinct steep and steeper sections and finally you get to the summit of Tiger 3. (there are 6 peaks in and about Tiger Mountain)
We got there at headlight time, 6:30, and went right up the trail.
We went down Tiger 3 and then up Tiger 2:
Nice trail and nice view on the way down:
Just under 7 miles, 4.5 hours, lots of steep elevation gain, soaked to the skin – we had a great time.
