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.

Really good half day hike. The first half of the trail is the steepest. It's gets easier towards the top. Great view at the end of issaquah and Bellevue. Also two great views of MT Rainer.

You will definitely get a workout on this trail. It's rated hard on WTA. The views are incredible, many make the mistake and stop at the first lookout/clearing but if you keep going on the trail you will come to the launching pad for the paragliders. This view looks over issaquah and is so beautiful!
