The Alumni Club is going to take a hike… to Poo Poo Point! Poo Poo Point is located in Issaquah, on the shoulder of West Tiger Mountain. It’s a popular hiking trail, whose summit is used as a launching spot for paragliders. We will meet at the parking lot for the Chirico Trail at 9 am; it is a popular trail, so arrive early before the lot gets too crowded. Poo Poo Point can also be accessed via the high school trail, with parking available at nearby Issaquah High School.
The hike is approximately 4 miles roundtrip, with an elevation gain of 1760 feet. The trail is rated as friendly for kids. Dogs also are allowed on leashes.
Wear your Maize and Blue, and pack a picnic lunch.
Send a note to Jason Gomberg if you have any questions.
Directions to the Chirico Trail parking lot: From I-90 in Issaquah take Exit 17 (Front Street) and head south on Front Street through the old part of town. At the south end of town, Front Street changes names to Issaquah Hobart Road. 3.1 miles from I-90, turn into the large graveled parking area on the left adjacent to the paraglider landing field.
There is no regular source of water here. This side of the field is King County land, and it is not necessary to display a Discover Pass.
