Cable Line

You don't have enough time for a lot of driving, but still want a trail workout? Look no further than the Cable Line. Before he got fired, ex–Seahawks coach Jim Mora used the 2,000-foot, two-mile jagged scar running down the side of Tiger Mountain for his morning jog. Whereas most trails climb gradually, the Cable Line (so named because that's what it is—a clear-cut that hides a buried utility cable underneath) takes a direct route to the mountain's peak. A steep ascent that isn't even listed on the trail map, the Cable Line might take you as long to find as it does to drive to Tiger Mountain (20 minutes without traffic). But it's worth the trip. —Caleb Hannan
