Good news for mountain bikers and other recreationists hoping to squeeze in more outdoor activities in this good weather: The Tiger Mountain multi-use trails will remain open this weekend, October 15-16, and possibly through the following weekend.

Typically, DNR closes these trails for the season in early October as the fall rains set in and the trails get soggy and cause problems with water quality and drainage. Luckily, this year, we’re able to extend the season.

Tentatively, the trails will remain open until Monday, October 24. Check our website for updates on the trail situation or contact Sam Jarrett at 206-375-0448.

The Tiger Mountain Multi-use Trails, located on the east side of Tiger Mountain off Highway 18, are extremely popular with mountain bike riders but are also available to other non-motorized uses including hiking and horseback riding. The trail system includes Preston, Iverson, and Northwest Timber.
