Description: This hike will be a semi-loop. We will go up the Nook and Section line trail (1,300 ft in a mile). Check out the rocks on the Talus Rocks Loop Trail. Stop at the summit of West Tiger #3. Then go up down and up to #2 then down and up to West Tiger #3 and have lunch. Then we will go back to West Tiger #3 the same way and then take the Tiger Mountain Trail down the mountain. I have been to West Tiger #3 but not 2 and 1. Be prepared for a little route finding.

From I-90 take exit 20 and then turn right onto the frontage road paralleling the interstate. In just under 0.5 mile the road ends at a gate. The gate opens daily, though it is closed and locked at 7:00 PM. Park outside the gate if you'll be returning late in the day. Otherwise, continue another 0.4 mile to the Tradition Plateau trailhead.
