Weekday Fun - Sunset Poo Poo Point - Make New Friends !

Needs a location

Making new friends can be intimidating, but it’s definitely rewarding. After all, friends form a big part of our life for most of us. They are the ones who walk through life together, share our ups and downs, and pains and joys. Without friends, life wouldn’t be the same at all. We wouldn’t be who we are if not for them.

If you’ve dreamed of night hiking, but have yet to try it, it’s time to get out there and meet some active friends!

We will witness a magnificent full moon rise from the eastern skyline.... a beautiful night and a great hike to see the sunset and a moon
Our very own Jason & Crew will lead you on this ! Arrive early to park and ride. Moderate but doable for beginners. !

Let it glow, let it glow! hopefully it will be glowing gold on this hike. Join the fun! YOU WILL NEED LIGHTS !!

Grab the beer/wine and maybe even a headlamp or flashlight, and let's go hiking in the moon glow! Let's do a toast at the top. This hike is a fairly easy four miles and will take around two hours. Restrooms and water at the start and turn around of this hike.

Hiking is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the outdoors. Transported by your own two feet and carrying only what you need for the day on your back, you can discover the beauty of nature at whatever pace you’re comfortable with. And, with a little planning and preparation, it’s an activity that almost anyone can do.

New to hiking, or just looking for a hike with a spectacular endpoint? Look no further than Poo Poo Point on the Mountain! At just 7 miles roundtrip. it is the perfect destination for any hiker looking for something challenging and beautiful. The views along the way are what make the hike. It’s a good workout for a short hike. Spring is the best time of year.

With 360-degree views at the top and a good overlook around the midway point, the Trail on the Mountain can be a little challenging but well worth it. It's only 3.5 miles to the top, but the nearly 2,000' elevation gain slowed us down quite a bit. However, all that effort does come with rewards from this vantage point. This is a fine hike on a well maintained, albeit busy trail through the forest with views of the Cedar River watershed, Mount Si, Mount Washington, Rattlesnake Lake and Chester Morse Lake.

Poo Poo Point is an extraordinary trip packed with breathtaking scenery. Come join me on an adventure close to home.

Some of the most gorgeous and memorable scenery is located just an hour from the city.

Spring allows you to take full advantage of the stunning and colorful scenery. Bring your cameras for wonderful photos and selfies.
Better than some new world created for a virtual reality game, it’s all there for you to enjoy.
