Poo Poo Point Trail

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. We may even see some bears again

    Tough hike with elevation gain, but worth it for the beautiful scenary.

    Nice to have such a large parking lot & no need for a pass. Trail steep to start & then it levels out. Its all under the canopy of gorgeous rain forest with tinkling waters running nearby. All in all a wonderful trail with many side options.

      Anytime you add a guest and the event is full, that will automatically move you to the waitlist and bump the next single waitlisted person (ie. no guest) up.

    Members, please answer urgently:

    The address "East end of Sunset Way ( Just before you get onto I-90 ), Issaquah, WA" is not clear to me. I am not from the area.

    Can you give an exact address so I can use it with my GPS?

    • Bob G.

      I haven't been able to locate an address for this parking lot but it's just one block down from Flintofts Funeral Home. You could look up that address and go from there if you are using a GPS

    Look who is here, and nobody informed me :) Hello guys, I want to get back into the hiking scene.

    Most of the paragliders won't be launching until about 1:00. I can arrange tandem flights down for anyone who wants to fly down rather than hike.
