3:00pm at the Poo Poo Point trailhead off Issaquah-Hobart Road where the paragliders land. Email to go out a day before the hike.

There is a new trail "roughed in" up to Poo Poo Point near the Chirico Trailhead. I have been told it is a little bit longer and needs more people to use it. Let's go check it out together at a moderate conversational pace. Expect a little adventure with potentially more mud and branches in addition to the normal elevation gain. We might use the Chirico Trail for the way back down.
