Take Exit 17 off of I-90 and turn south onto Front Street.To reach the northern trailhead, turn left at the light at Sunset Way and in two blocks turn right on 2nd Ave SE. In about 0.3 miles, turn left on SE Evans Street. The pavement ends beyond 4th Pl SE (watch for potholes). Follow SE Evans Street as it eventually bends sharply to the right and, beyond the Sportsmen's Club, dead ends at the trailhead. There is room for about six cars to park at the trailhead, and room for many more along the wide shoulders of the approaching street. There are no facilities here.


Follow the High School Trail for about a mile to the intersection with the Poo Poo Point Trail. Turn right and hike the Poo Poo Point Trail to the north and south viewpoints.
