Poo Poo Point Trail

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.

    If the weather is suitable for paragliding I can arrange for tandem flights down for those who are interested. Email me if you are interested for details.

    So far we have nine on the waiting list and I'm sure it will continue to grow as we get closer to the date. I would hate to see these people miss out because of no-shows or last minute cancellations. I do take no-shows very seriously, so if you plans change between now and March 3rd, please take a moment and update your RSVP..............thanks.

      It's hard to give an exact time frame, just depends on the weather and our pace. It will range anywhere from 4 - 6 hours.
