Great Sunrise hike. Trail is in great condition.

Great hike. So much different than one week ago. Most of the snow has melted, it was warmer this morning, and we saw the sunrise. Trail maintenance is needed after the last wind storm. Lots of tree branches rare down.

yay we survived

Very good hike close to city!

I hiked Poo Poo Point last year when it was nice and warm. I'm out of shape so the hike for my boyfriend and I was not easy and there are lots of people there once the sun starts shining. BUT do not turn around and give up! Once you get all the way to the top it is so beautiful and breathtaking.
This was my first real hike living in WA and I would do it all over again no matter how tough it was for me!

Great trail, we did high school trail and up to poo poo point and came back down on Chirico trail. Altogether was shy of 6 miles. Going up from the High school trail is a bit longer but kind of a gradual climb, a bit muddy in parts and the last .5 mile at the summit it is still packed snow. We had microspikes and definitely helped but it is doable with waterproof hiking shoes and would also help a lot to have poles. The Chirico trail is steeper but shorter and warmer with an unobstructed view of Mt.Rainier at summit. A lot of people with dogs BUT PLEASE IF YOU ARE GONNA BRING YOUR DOG, TAKE THEIR POOP BAGS WITH YOU! It was amazing in a bad way to see so many baggies of poop

Wonderful walk with the kids today. Great fun. It was a sunny day and the parking lot was packed. Don't forget your discovery pass. Most of the trail is stroller accessible. The middle part is not, but you can backtrack.

Awesome hike today, perfect weather for it! Be aware that there is still about 1ft of snow at the top of Poo Poo Point as well as at least the last half mile leading to the top via the high school trail. You can make it with regular running shoes but will likely have a few slips in the process. The chirico trail is a little muddy at the top but other than that no snow to speak of there.

Overall the trail is in decent shape. Up in the higher elevation there is still snow, and the trail is still pretty slick in some spots. Nothing too outrageous, and it made for a pretty unique hike. It is definitely a good hike to start the season. You can power through it in under a few hours, it gets your heart rate going, and both my dog and I enjoyed stopping in a few spots to soak up the serenity.

That’s was fun. It wasn’t muddy even though we’ve had some rain in last 24 hours, but there is some snow/ice still on trail that made some downhill parts a bit tricky (I don’t have poles but my runners have aggressive grip soles and primarily made for hiking.) I’m pretty new to this and would not have liked to tackle this without a trail app or really good map (I’m using the AllTrails app). Enjoy

A much different hike today due to lots of snow on the trail. Used microspikes.

Some snow and slush at the top

This was my first time hiking the trial and it was quite an enjoyable experience. The view at the first viewpoint was worth the hike and on a clear day has a nice view of Mount Rainier. As some others have said it is basically 1.5 miles constantly uphill to the first view point so being the first hike of the season for me I had take a few breaks going up. The trial was muddy in a few places and pretty icy towards the top, it’s manageable in tennis shoes with decent tread but hiking boots or adding micro-spikes would be super helpful. The downsides at least in my experience was that the trial was really busy, and parking was insane. Luckily there was a parking lot close down the road with cheap parking.

Awesome trail! Currently (March 10th),there is still ice near the top making it a little sketchy and there are some muddy parts. Otherwise everything is great. The hike is uphill basically the entire way making it a tiring hike, but 100% worth the view. If you don’t want many people on the trail and easy parking, go before 9am. If you want to see paraglider’s go around 10-12, but heavy traffic and parking can be difficult.

Great trail, due to the snow and icy conditions we ended up going back at the first view point which was 1.87 miles up (according to my watch) we were only in regular tennis shoes. It looked like the trail had even more snow/ ice going further in the trail. We will be back once the weather warms up a bit to get to the 2nd view point.

Hiked March 8th. Muddy for the middle portion and about 4" of packed snow at the top, regular boots are fine but you'd slide a bit in running sneakers. It's a fun quick afternoon hike with a nice summit but there are definitely better hikes in the area.

Too icy still on steep parts. Turned back. Try again next month.

Icy floors at the top. Bring crampons and hiking poles.

Beautiful hike on a sunny Sunday morning in March, but very icy at the top. We brought along microspikes for our hiking boots and were so glad that we did. People without them were slipping and sliding all over the place. Two different viewpoints at top facing two different directions. Our dog enjoyed it as well. Steady incline pretty much the entire trail so it was definitely a workout.

Love it! Really icy at the end, but totally worth it. Depending of the time is really hard to find a parking spot, but not impossible. It was a great workout!

There was a quite a bit of snow at the top and because the last part is quite steep, coming back down seemed a bit dangerous. Otherwise, the view was beautiful overlooking the trees and Mount Rainier.

Great viewpoint of Mount Rainier at the top. Go a little further and you get a sweet overlook of Issaquah/Bellevue areas. Loved it!!
