High Point, Washington
High Point, on the eastern fringe of Issaquah, is named for its location at the highest point on a railroad grade.  Once the location of a significant lumber mill  and railway station , it is now only a small collection of houses on large lots along I-90 at the "High Point Way" exit, and a Tiger Mountain trailhead.
A lumber mill once existed at High Point, which employed 52 workers in 1913. Many of the state-owned timberlands near High Point continue to produce logs for mills elsewhere to this day, while also being open for recreational use.
High Point was the location of Tent City 4 beginning in early 2016, while the camp was awaiting a permit to move to Bellevue. Today, High Point consists of a small collection of houses, state forest access roads and a Tiger Mountain trailhead at a minor exit on Interstate 90 east of Issaquah.
