Hike – PooPoo Point
November 14, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0
Length: 7.2 miles, roundtrip Elevation Gain: 1858 ft. Parking Pass/Entry Fee: None
The folksy name is a reference to the steam whistle sounds heard throughout the Tigers in the early days of logging. More recently (1970s) the area around Poo Poo Point was logged by its then owners, Weyerhaeuser Corporation. They even took the stumps! The result is a large clear area used now as a launching pad by paragliders who generally backpack their lightweight gear up the Chirico Trail, or sometimes arrive by minibus. The Point also offers a fine view northwest across Issaquah and Lake Sammamish toward Bellevue’s downtown. To the west are Squak and Cougar Mountains, with a hint of Seattle’s tallest buildings showing beyond.
