    Route Description for Poop Out Trail

    If you are after a strong challenge on the trails, then the Poop Out Hike will be sure to give you a run for your money! Although it isn’t overly long, this route is steep and rocky, making it ideal for those looking to push it to the limit.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the northeast and steadily gain elevation into the mountains. Here, you will eventually need to traverse some rocky stretches of trail that will require you to scramble at times.

    After taking in the views overlooking the city and surrounding wilderness, follow the trail as it loops around and gradually descends the hillside to return to the trailhead where you began.

    Getting to the Poop Out Trail Trailhead
