Coal mining, crime, and deception were alive and well on Tiger Mountain, just a few miles south of downtown Issaquah, in the early 20th century. Honest coal miners mixed with henchmen and bunko artists to create a set of colorful stories — which you can hear as you explore the original setting of the events.

The Issaquah History Museums (IHM) are pleased to introducing the newest addition to their series of history hikes. Walk in the footsteps of miners, scallawags, bootleggers, and other energetic profiteers, and learn how Tiger Mountain and its secrets gained a reputation as far away as Utah, Wyoming, Oregon, Colorado, and other far flung locations. Visit the site of the Caroline Mine, where hike leaders will introduce you to its operations and structures — and the people who passed through its history. This hike will open your eyes to a whole new side of Issaquah’s history!

This hike lasts roughly 2.5 hours, goes about 2.5 miles, and has an elevation gain of roughly 100 feet.

**********

Participants will meet at the Issaquah Depot Museum (78 First Avenue NE, Issaquah) and receive a parking pass and a map to a parking lot in the Tiger Mountain State Forest. The hike will begin there. Note that this parking lot is not generally available to the public, and won't be accessible without the pass.
