Difficult hike in my opinion. Crazy good workout, was drenched in sweat by the time I reached the point. There are two ways to reach Poo point, Chirico trail is one of them. There’s a high steep level for the most part. You would get to hear traffic for the first 1/2 mile, then it’s peaceful till the Poo Poo point. Amazing views of Mt Rainer! No para gliding in winter, was so looking forward to the views I read about in reviews.

I'm out of shape and fit into shine heavy breathing but I enjoyed this stroll.

Quick, steep hill to get your heart rate up

Beautiful even in the dead of winter

Easy walk with some great waterfalls along the way .

It is a good place for walk.

This hike starts out really steep and you wonder if you'll ever make it, but it's fairly short so by the time you get done, you're like oh, that's it? The app said there was a view, and there wasn't, but it's really pretty scenery all the way up and down. (trickling streams, bridges, mossy boulders, ferns galore)

Absolutely stunning hike!
Highly recommend good shoes for this and pay attention to the terrain on the way down as much as the way up, if not more! I had an accident on the way down with a not-so-great outcome, but got some gorgeous photos on the way up, and proud to be able to say, ‘I made it to the top!’

nothing spectacular about this hike, parking area is packed crowds galore, summit is not much view either there is restrooms at the top, prolly wont hike this again

Beautiful view at top. Moderate difficulty, short and sweet, shaded hike, not too much variety in scenery along hike.

Great sunrise hike yesterday. Started at 6 am no one else on the hike up & at the top.

Lots of dogs and kids on the trail. Can watch the paragliders as they go down. The first half is lots of rocks and stones so watch your step if it’s been raining. Nice views at the top. Took us 1hr to get up and 45 to get down, under 4 miles total. Good afternoon hike.

Beautiful trail, awesome view!

took the dog on this route today, go early on the weekends the parking area was filled by 8am when we arrived and there was groups of 3-5 on way back down after 10am the crowds get insane took twice as long to get down then go up, but good hike for a early morning hike and back around 1pm

Got to the trailhead a little after noon and the lot was full but there really weren’t many people on the trail. If the weather is nice you’ll likely see some paragliders landing at the trailhead. Beautiful view of the surrounding area and Mt Rainer at the first clearing and I’d recommend going up to the second clearing (Poo Poo Point) to get a view of Cougar Mtn and Lake Sammamish. Super short trail - only took us a little over an hour going up with a few breaks and probably 45 min going down at the most.

Well maintained trail, short and sweet! Great sunny cold day with some peekaboo views.

Easy stroll.

Really good hike. Kid friendly and good balance is sun and shade.

Went on a Saturday and expected to see a lot of people, but it really wasn’t too bad, though the lot was full. The trail is nice and clear. It is incline the whole way, but it is short, and there are places to pull over and rest. The view from the top is wonderful. What a great way to spend and afternoon!

Did this hike about a month ago! Definitely gets your heart pumping! The view at the top wasn’t really much of anything, however it was an awesome work out and really pretty greenery!!! ❤️

Hiked this in the height of WA's summer. Nook trail was a steep climb and a good workout. West Tiger 3 was moderate, but the view was very underwhelming. Overall a good workout, but I would not do again. My phone recorded closer to 6 miles total.

Extremely busy but well maintained trail. Does get steep in parts but the view at the top is beautiful. The Paragliders were tons of fun to watch and many of them offered tandem rides down.

Great trail and some good mushroom foraging here. Lots of fallen leaves now but a group ahead of us was still able to find a bunch of chanterelle mushrooms. This trail is easier on the moderate spectrum in terms of difficulty level, lots of trail runners here.

Great morning trail during the summer before it gets to hot. This is a great work out on the way up as it does get pretty step. But fun with the views and good company.

Did a quick up and down the back way from the parking lot. Cool day for hiking. No rain. No mud. Had my son Jim and April, daughter in law, in tow. Happy Trails.

nice walk up and great views

Mushrooms, moss, ferns, leaves, and a nice view of Issaquah and Lake Sammamish at the top. Bring hiking boots not Chuck Taylors.
