Apparently there is a tree somewhere along the trail that people decorate. Let's see if we can find it. Bring along an eco friendly decoration to hang if we do. This will be a conditioning hike so expect the pace to be a little quicker, because Kristen has to get home for the SeaHawks game.
I stole this off of another meet up site:
Way out on the Bootleg Trail on the Southeast side of Tiger Mountain 1, there is an evergreen tree people have been decorating with Christmas ornaments for years. I have hung a few ornaments here myself.So this year, join my tradition and hang an ornament on the tree. Unless the weather is foul, we will make this a Tiger 1 loop hike. We will start out on the Wilderness Loop trail and onto Dwight’s Way. Both these trails are very scenic. Dwight’s Way then turns into the Bootleg Trail.
After a break at the Christmas Tree, we will head up to the Top of Tiger 1, then back down Tiger Mountain Trail (TMT) to the parking lot. This loop is probably a little over 8 miles and a 2,500 foot gain.
Weather and trail conditions will determine if we complete this. Please come prepared for the weather with proper clothing, foot wear, and traction devices. Check meet up site day of event for any cancellations or changes due to weather, road conditions, illness etc.
I am limiting attendance to this hike as I am cross posting on my other meet up site. Put yourself on the wait list if it fills here and I will bump you in if my other site is not full.
