Inside Passage Details
Inside Passage provides intermediate riding opportunities on a mid-mountain elevation loop (when combined with Joy Ride and NW Timber trails). It also opens up new terrain for riders to access a future downhill route, expected to break ground fall of 2017, that will connect up with NW Timber Trail.
Inside Passage provides a rolling, occasionally narrow route with some exposure, that trends downward to connect with the Joy Ride Trail. The trail begins about 1.3 miles up the Master Link Trail.
DNR’s Snoqualmie Corridor Recreation Plan, released in March 2015, included new opportunities in East Tiger Mountain as a top priority. The new trail is a result of the local input and community support that went into that planning effort. Visitors will continue to see improvements identified in the plan on the ground for the next decade.
Funding for this new trail was made possible through Nonhighway & Off-road Vehicle Activities Program and Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program grants, which the Washington State Recreation & Conservation Office awarded to DNR.
From Issaquah, go east on I-90 to exit 25. Turn right onto SR-18 west. Go 4.5 miles to Tiger Summit. Turn right. Take Westside Road left .3 miles to the Tiger Summit Trailhead on right. Leaving the trailhead, ride out on the Connector trail. Cross the Main Tiger Mountain Road onto NW Timber Trail for a few hundred feet before turning left to get on the Master Link Trail. Ride the Master Link Trail for 1.3 miles, turn right to access the Inside Passage trail.
