Nice hike today with Ken, Mark and Greg. Fun group. We did a loop in which we went up to West Tiger 1 summit, then down, then up to Tiger 2, then back to where we started at the Tiger 1/2 gate.
Not a massively scenic route, it is mostly through the forest, but at the Tiger 1 summit there is a nice view.
The first time I was up here, last year with Derek, they had logged a big section near the summit and the trees were all over the trail. Getting through was very tough. At least they have sawed through the trees and the going is much easier. But the place is still ugly:
7.5 miles, 2,840 feet of elevation, three and a quarter hours, nice workout!
