This is the shorter route to Poo Poo Point, beginning at the paragliding landing field rather than the high school several miles to the north.

Incredible hike! Well maintained trail, easy to navigate. Took my 3 1/2 yr. old and it took her about 3 hrs. 45 min to do the round trip. Included a lunch at the top. Great family adventure.

Hiked multiple times, pretty steep but not very long. A good place for paragliding.

I consider this trail to be difficult. Lots of rocks and very steep, with no give. The rocks are great for incline, but no so much with decline. You're inclining the whole time and it gets steeper and steeper, there may have been a few steps where there was no incline, but that's it. Lots of places to stop and sit along the way, and for good reason.
The views up top are gorgeous especially if Mt. Rainier is visible. The trek back down, is awful, really hard on the knees.

Great hike! Its a small hike easily accomplished in the afternoon. It includes two amazing view points so make sure to go to both. I was very pleased with the trail and with the incline I think it would be an excellent trail to train on.

Great hike, would not rate as easy however, certainly moderate. We logged 4.8 miles to the top where paragliders were vs. 3.6
