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!

This has become my "go to" hike when I don't have a ton of time to plan or explore. A little of everything, water fall, challenge, pretty woods and of course the views at the end.

First time on this trail and loved it. Because of the rain the path was muddy in some areas, but the trail was clearly marked and well maintained. Will definitely be back on a sunny day for the view!

The view was well worth the onward hike with decent elevation gain. Return was easy as it was mostly downhill.

We made it about half way as new hikers with a dog that was new to hiking as well. It is pretty steep and rocky, I would definitely recommend hiking boots. There were a lot of people on the trail that makes it a little crowded but amazing views, lots of shade. We will be sure to go back

Really good hike. Not too crowded early. Crowed later. Good trail conditions. More people wearing masks in the morning. Most people pulled off to maintain distance.

Trail date 05/23/2020 Day hike on an early, cloudy Saturday morning. Parked at Issaquah High School, plenty of parking at 8am. Lots of people, trail is steady uphill, and super muddy and rocky and I am VERY glad I wore hiking boots. The view at the top is awesome, binoculars come in handy!! Fun to watch the paragliders, too!

Beautiful hike with awesome views at the top. I arrived before 8am and the parking lot was basically full. As I was coming down it was even more crowded, and some people did not maintain social distance, getting really close. Good trail conditions, just arrive early.

First time on this trail, a little bit rough for a newbie like me but I like it. If you like nature photography, I think this is one of the spot. It was a little foggy so we couldn't really see anything when I get to the top, definitely will try again on a sunny day.

First time at the point and I was pleasantly surprised. Easy to feel secluded on all the different trails.

5/18/20 beautiful hike. Parked at the high school without any issues. Steady unrelenting grade on the way up, but seeing paragliders flying at the top was so worth it. Bring a blanket or camp chair (and wind breaker) to have lunch and enjoy your time at the top.

Beautiful day for the hike. Parked at the high school where there was plenty of parking around 1pm. Trail was not too crowded, did see plenty of people and dogs out but everyone was very respectful. Muddy towards the top but avoidable for the most part. Lots of paragliders at the top, and it was very fun watching them take off.

This was a great trail to do on a sunny day! Lots of people had masks on and stayed a good distance away and it’s great for dogs as well. Took about 3hr 30min round trip. The view was very rewarding <3

Parked just before 8am on 5/11, 3 other cares. Saw a few people on the way up, definitely far more people on the way down. People were largely staying extra far apart & about 50% had masks!
