Somehow we missed the trail indicators (despite printing and trying to follow the description of this trail from this website) and ended up on Unmaintained Trail K3, which was in quite good condition and a lovely, if steep, woodsy trail. We ended up meeting the West Tiger Railroad Grade trail, and then after following it for a while encountered another poorly signed intersection (i.e. no sign) and accidentally took the Tiger Mountain Cable Trail down to meet West Tiger 3 trail and back to the trailhead at High Point. All told we think we hiked a 6 mile loop.
The take-home is that this trail isn't well-signed at intersections, so be careful. We never got to a vista, but did enjoy much of the hike, encountering few people until the West Tiger 3 trail.
