CHS 2 Hike

Field trip: Conditioning Hiking Series

CHS 2 Hike - Poo Poo Point via High School Trail

CHS hike led at a CHS 2 pace (2.0-3.0 mph) to Poo Poo Point via the High School Trail in the Tiger Mountain State Forest. If the weather is clear we'll be rewarded with views Issaquah, Lake Sammamish and possibly downtown Seattle and the Olympics and paragliders. From Poo Poo Point, we will hike an extra 1/2 mile to the Rainier Mountain viewing spot. If the weather is wet, this trail holds up well in the rain and is in a lovely forest.
