What you'll do

We'll get started with an introduction and warm up to ensure our bodies are prepared for the hike ahead. Then we'll jump right into the hike, remaining on the clearly marked trail to Poo Poo Point. The trail does continue further beyond this viewpoint, but that connects to another trail that we will not be doing. Hiking pace is generally slower than walking pace, and averages 1.5-2.5 miles per hour depending on guests' fitness level and stops for water, snacks, and photos. We will stop as many times as needed to ensure guests are hydrated, fed, and get a chance to take in the views. A break at the turnaround point (summit) will be followed by the descent back to the trailhead, where we will conclude the hike with more stretching and say our goodbyes. Poo Poo Point - Chirico Trail is a short but relatively steep hike. This hike climbs 1,760 feet in about 2 miles (3.8 miles roundtrip), and the trail is mostly dirt and rock steps with tree cover until the lower and upper viewpoints. No technical skills are necessary, but guests should be aware that the elevation grade of this trail is 17.5% (Other popular hikes like Rattlesnake Ledge have an 11% grade).

Where you'll be

We will be hiking up to Poo Poo Point, beginning at the Chirico Trailhead in Issaquah. However, we could do a slightly less steep (but longer) version of this hike to Poo Poo Point, starting at Issaquah High School, just 1.9 miles up the road from the Chirico Trailhead. Both trails are similar in elevation gain and converge at the same summit, but depending on the ability of the group it may be preferable to take the longer trail (9.7% grade).

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).
