The Tiger Mountain Trail Map is a map that shows the passing trail through the Tiger Mountain but it isn’t a direct route to any location. In this map, the wanderer will show the route to pass through this mountain with its various points. According to the map, the overall distance from the northern end to the southern end of TMT is about 7.5 miles. But on the trail map, the overall forest wandering distance is 15 miles. The trail map takes you to hike through deciduous and mixed forests and past various areas with century old logging. It also passes through the forest wildflowers in season. This trail is an old trail so you will notice some rustic signs along the way like Ruth’s Cove, Manning Reach and Joe’s Hollow.
