Meet at  10:15 a.m. at the Issaquah Trails Center: 

110 SE Bush Street
Issaquah, WA

This is the small yellow building that looks like a house at the end of a long parking area. We will walk to the trailhead from there.

Note: for anyone coming from Seattle, there is a Sound Transit 554 bus that can drop you off nearby at 10:03 am:

We will walk about a half mile to the trail from the meeting place in Issaquah. We will follow about 7 miles of trails to our destination, Poo Poo point, an outcrop off of Tiger Mountain where on a clear day you can sometimes see paragliders launching. We'll stop there for lunch before heading back down the same way. 

For those who are interested, we can stop in town for refreshments after the hike.
