West Tiger 2 is a peak located in Tiger Mountain State Forest. This destination can be reached through a variety of trail connections allowing you to build your own hike. You can create several different loops incorporating one or more of the peaks Tigers1, 2 and 3. This is trail will get your heart rate up as you climb through the trees to the peek-a-boo views at the top.

One popular option is to start at the High Point Trailhead. Follow signs for West Tiger Mountain. Head toward West Tiger #3. You’ll start on a wide, flat, gravel trail for the first third of a mile, then begin gaining elevation at a steady pace. Once you get to the top of Tiger 3 keep going forward and up on to Tiger 2. You can either start down to close your loop. Or if you still have energy take the steep gravel road over to Tiger 1 for what some say is the best view from West Tiger.
