Typical view [?]
NOTE: Often not so shady - especially if map leaves you stranded on a road for hours
NOTE: Worthwhile except for ease of getting lost
NOTE: HORRID signs and maps

Strap yourself in - we're pissed off about this one.
There was a big forest fire here in the 90s so it's pretty short oaks - scrubby oaks under slightly taller oaks. The signs and maps are very confusing - suggest bringing something to sort out GPS location without cell signal. Also it can get pretty hot so bring water... especially if you get lost.
Turkeys, some water birds.
A fair number of deer. Lots of deer tracks visible as well.
Malevolent maps and signs. Picnic tables. There are camping, fishing, and equestrian areas in the forest as well.
Approach on US92, reconsider, turn around.
I'm not going to get into this deeply because it's exhausting.
For us - I think it was 4 hours. Should be like 1 - it's a 2 mile trail. The whole forest If you wanted to walk all the roads etc I'm making a wild guess at like 20 miles of it from the map. I'd highly suggest you DON'T walk those roads... just that you could in theory.
First - do not trust the maps and definitely not the signs. Highly recommend you download maps that don't require a cell signal. It's a simple trail and they spent money on numbered signs but holy crap is it a mess.
That said - it's an interesting forest. There was a massive forest fire here in the 90s so it's all fairly short and scrubby but had some cool deer encounters and the height afforded a bit more bird encounters in a forest like this than might be normal. Also ran into a group of turkeys in the woods - usually you only see them on the edges of forests. There's a lake as well - meh - it was okay.
Also the name is odd - Tiger Bay. There's no tigers and it's not on the ocean or any lake big enough to be considered to have a bay. Wikipedia says it refers to a prominent wetland in here somewhere. Love to know why they'd name that "Tiger Bay" - why not "The grand sea of dragons" and go all in?
