Poo Poo Point Trail is a great hike to Poo Poo Point on the shoulder of West Tiger Mountain within Tiger Mountain State Forest. The trail can be accessed from the Issaquah Alps trailhead where there is free parking. There is also parking at Issaquah High School. The trail starts off with a gentle incline but gets increasingly steeper the farther you go. The trail follows Many Creeks Valley and crosses several creeks. There is a nice bridge that crosses Gap Creek which makes for a good place to explore and take a break. The entire trail is under tree cover so you will never be directly in the sun. At the top, there are great views, especially at sunset, two picnic tables, and there is a Clivus toilet. The point is a popular area for paragliding and hang gliding and paragliders and hang gliders use it as a launch point and landing area. You may see a paraglider landing on the point if you are lucky!

It was about a little over 3 hr hike starting from the high school. Great gradual incline trail all the way up . Lots of folks out with their kids and dogs. The trail is beautiful with all the moss covered trees.

The team took on Poo Poo Point (Tiger Mtn) this morning in the pouring rain. The field and a portion of the parking lot at the Chirico trailhead were flooded due to the recent heavy rains. So we drove to the Poo Poo Point trailhead by Issaquah High School and hiked from there. The trail was very wet and muddy. We didn’t summit, but got in 5.6 miles RT in 1:40 minutes with 1,398’ elevation gain. Tideworks Mountaineers, Alan Lenny, Caroline Fox, Larry Jackson, Hugh Gallagher, and Steve Albert were there.

Really wet today. Started at 9 am and quite a bit of people. Some heavy water flows especially in the way back down. Be prepared for mud!

January 11 - steady rains brought out six umbellas. ponchos and rainwear on all dozen-and-a-half hikers except a party of four first-timers and another of two gettin' all wet going up Poo-Poo Creek, . . . I mean, Trail sine head wear and two pretty thinclad tough running gals. Very impressive, too, at least six first ascenters picking a day like this. One step-over small windfall at about 1.5 mile. very annoying recording registers on my history but only sometimes here.
