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.

Quick hike. Just long enough of a hike to feel like the view from atop was earned.

Great Hike - Easy to find and the trailhead well marked. Easy to follow trail goes go up, up, & up. Trail was in really good shape with only a little mud. I was first on the Mountain so it was quiet going up however it was a Monday and I was there really early. When you get to the top and it is clear, take pictures - amazing how fast the fog moves in. I extended the hike for some additional miles. Wasnt much to see however the forest was so quiet and peaceful. My first Washington hike was a great hike

Great views and fun seeing people paragliding from the top. On a clear day Mt Rainier would be visible. Takes 45 min to go up with very few breaks and about 30 min to come down. The path gets steep in some places.
