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!

Was an easy trail for me, and very very popular. Parking is limited so the earlier you get there, the shorter the wait is for a spot. Trail isn't hard but the view is quite nice. The second lookout is nicer and worth the extra 2 mins of hiking.

Great fall hike. We did this yesterday and had a lot of fun. It took us around 3.5 hours and we are pretty average hikers and took it slowly and stopped at the top for about 30 minutes. I would recommend bringing a winter coat, jacket and a scarf but that should be enough for this time of the year. There is no snow and lots of people. If you don't find a parking spot immediately stay around for 15 minutes, there are usually people coming and going pretty often.
