Hikers should avoid Tiger Mountain trail due to exposed electrical cables

October 25, 2011

By Staff

The state Department of Natural Resources warned hikers to avoid the Cable Line Trail on West Tiger Mountain due to exposed electrical cables at ground level.

Hikers access the trail through the lower parking area at the High Point exit along Interstate 90. The trail then heads up the mountain to communication towers.

Though the Department of Natural Resources does not manage the trail, the agency said the hazard is serious and encouraged hikers to use other trails.

The affected trail could reopen in 30 days or sooner.
