See history in your backyard. Tiger Mountain is full of historic trails, but the Bus Trail gets its name from an old bus that lies on its side along the trail. Kids will love exploring the area, and the Bus Trail can be used to make a huge variety of loops on the north side of Tiger Mountain.

Getting There

From I-90 take exit 20 and then turn right onto the frontage road paralleling the interstate. In just under 0.5 mile the road ends at a gate. The gate opens daily, though it is closed and locked at 7:00 pm. Park outside the gate if you'll be returning late in the day. Otherwise, continue another 0.4 mile to the Tradition Plateau trailhead. The Bus Trail will become evident after about a 0.1 mile hike in.
