Fagin's Hike of the Week: Chirico Trail aka Poo Poo Point

Updated 1-27-2017
Chirico Trail aka Poo Poo Point. This is just several miles south of Issaquah good close in hike.  Rumor has it that "poo poo” sound made by loggers' steam whistles. From the recent trip reports wearing micro-spikes is a good idea.Photos are from last year.
