Thanks to theyogiclimber for adding this peak.
Tiger Mountain is a modest forest-covered multi-peak mountain in the Issaquah Alps just east of greater Seattle which makes it a very popular with locals. There are two primary summits, West Tiger and East Tiger, the latter of which is slightly higher, but the former is frequented much more. Most of the summits have radio towers and communications equipment, however Tiger Mountain has many popular hiking trails that lead to some treeless viewpoints that offer expansive views of the Puget Sound lowlands from Mount Baker to the north, Mount Rainier to the south, the Black Hills beyond Olympia to the southwest, and the Olympic Mountains to the west. Old logging roads and trails are popular with mountain bikers. Chirico Trail is another popular trail used by hikers that leads to Poo Poo Point which has northwest and south take-off zones for paragliders. Ferns are everywhere on Tiger Mountain: mostly sword fern, but also beautiful maidenhair fern, even ferns growing on trees.
