WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We’re just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit run on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this website this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Of course, time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone.

Please take 2 minutes to chip in $9.

The Quick Link Trail is a short segment in the middle of the east tiger trail system. Tiger Mountain is a dynamic forest owned and managed by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR). As a working forest it creates revenue for the state as well as providing recreation opportunities for hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders.

The shortest path to the Quick Link Trail is to leave from the tiger summit trailhead and travel along the Predator Trail for 1.8 miles until it intersects access road 5500. Hang a right and follow this road for a brief stint before arriving at the start of the Quick Link Trail. Over its 0.5 mile course, this trail gently contours a slope before ending at another intersection with access road 5500. Hop over the road to continue on the Master Link Trail or take this access road to another part of the forest. For mountain bike riders, they are only allowed to travel in the uphill direction on this trail, whereas hikers can move in both directions. Many other trails in this network are directional in the same way. This trail can be combined with others to form any number of loop hikes, including a trip to the east tiger summit and beyond.
