This is not at the Chirico Trailhead that most hikers take to get to Poo Poo Point. This is off Sunset Way just outside of Downtown Issaquah. Please read the details below.
Perched on the western end of Tiger Mountain, it provides one of the best views anywhere in the Issaquah Alps, even though it is more than 1000 feet below the summit. The Poo Poo Point Trail climbs to the viewpoint through some of the best forest anywhere on West Tiger Mountain and avoids most of the crowds that congregate on the mountain's northern side. Rain or shine.
