For a trail that starts behind a suburban high school (Issaquah High), Poo Poo Point nevertheless takes you somewhere wild, or at least wild-ish. Lots of people on the trail, at least when we went on a weekend, but the view from the point is gorgeous. From left to right: Squak Mtn., Cougar Mtn., the Olympics, downtown Bellevue, Lake Sammamish, and the Issaquah/Sammamish plateau. You can even see Issaquah High, where we ended up parking. Yes, parking is extremely limited at the trailhead (about six or seven spots) and the street (maybe four or five more). Unless you arrive early, you'll likely have to park at the high school. Short video and photos of our hike:

I feel like this trail is a little bit overrated. The view at the top isn't amazing, you're mostly just looking down at the city of Issaquah.

Great hike!! Nicely maintained trail. About 2.5 miles in Crampons were a must. Extremely icy.

A bit snowy and icy so I'd definitely recommend spikes! The hike up and view was gorgeous especially during the winter months

Honestly a great view of everything ! The olympics, Seattle, Bellevue, and other beautiful places. WARNING the trail gets icy the higher you go in the winter months so be wary about it

It was amazing. This is my first hike with my whole entire family. My sibling that where 6 and 9 years old completed the trail. It was cold but we were dressed for it. On top of the mountains there were snow which was breath taking. Another thing to look out is that the snow has turn into black ice for some part of the trail, so having a hiking shoes will help with that.
