Tiger Mountain State Forest bike trail opens
September 11, 2012
The state Department of Natural Resources opened a mountain bike trail in Tiger Mountain State Forest on Sept. 5 — 1.4-mile-long stretch long awaited by mountain bikers.
The result of months of construction, East Tiger Summit Mountain Bike Trail is the first new mountain bike trail built on Tiger Mountain in 20 years. The trail is accessible from the Tiger Summit Trailhead along state Route 18 southeast of Issaquah.
Department of Natural Resources planners received a pair of state Recreation and Conservation Office grants to build mountain bike trails on East Tiger Mountain and connect the path to existing trails.
The state received significant help from the nonprofit Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and volunteers to complete the project.
