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.

Bring a lunch (PCC is a great place to pick up some sandwiches), hang out at the north paragliding launch site, and enjoy watching the pilots take off and fly.
Private parking is available just north of the trail head for $5.

Awesome hike with the doggies! Great views. Make sure to get there early on the weekends to get parking and avoid a lot of foot traffic
