This is the shorter route to Poo Poo Point, beginning at the paragliding landing field rather than the high school several miles to the north. Popular site for hiking, paragliding and hang gliding The Chirico Trail is a lovely spot located just off of I-90 in Issaquah. It is conveniently located and after about 700 feet of elevation the noise from any roads disappears. It is easy to reach and leaves the user in the forest and forgetting how close I-90 and Highway 18 are for most of the trail. The south launch area allows the users to have lovely valley views while looking out over the top of the nudist colony. The north launch area of Poo-Poo Point allows the user to have lovely views of the Lake Sammamish and Issaquah.

Fantastic hike! It can be quite steep in a few areas, so I highly recommend hiking boots (not tennis shoes). Also my hiking pole came in VERY handy. Parking lot very full with cars idling just waiting for someone to come back from the hike so they could take their space – HOWEVER I found a private lot about three "blocks" north (on the west side of the road) that was charging just five dollars to park. Worked great and got me on the trail a lot faster! Be sure to go the extra quarter mile after you reach the first viewpoint – it's even more spectacular!
