Issaquah Alps -- Northwest Timber Trail
Tiger Mountain State Forest

From I-90 a few miles east of Issaquah, take Exit 25 and head south on Highway 18. In about four miles, turn off to the right at Tiger Summit. Or, if you are coming from Tacoma or points south on I-5, take the Highway 18 exit (Auburn) and head east to Tiger Summit. As you leave the pavement, watch for potholes. Continue on Road 1000 a quarter mile to the trailhead parking area, just before you reach a locked gate. A toilet is available, but no regular water source. A Discover Pass is required here. As an alternative, you could park in the large open area adjacent to Highway 18, where a Discover Pass is not required. In that event, it will be easier to walk up Road 4000 for 0.3 mile to find the beginning of the Northwest Timber Trail.
