Issaquah, Washington. There are two primary routes to Poo Poo Point -- the High School Trail or Chirico Trail. The High School trail is longer and less intense, about 8 miles round-trip with an elevation gain of about 1,800 feet. Chirico Trail is for youngsters and the physically fit as it gains 1,600 feet in 2 miles. Either way, it's a rigorous hike. The pay-off is at the Poo Poo Point on Tiger Mountain. If the weather is nice and the wind is cooperative, it's a paraglider party. If you enjoy hiking or hike occasionally, this is a Western Washington State hike that you must do. We did this hike in May of 2009, and I should warn you about two things -- due to construction at the high school the trail head can be a little difficult to locate, and there is a fake-out sign about ten minutes before you get to Poo Poo Point. If you turn around at the fake out sign, you will miss all the fun. Views of Seattle on one side, and Mount Rainier on the other. Bring lots of water and a picnic. Very close to Seattle via I-90. Not advised on a rainy day, as the trail will be muddy and slightly treacherous. If your heart yearns for adrenalin, take a paraglider lesson.
