We went there on a beautiful sunny summer day and the parking was full. You can park on the roadside in that case. The trail starts at the landing point for the para gliders. The trail itself is pretty difficult as it is all about going up from the start. There are not many views on the way up but it was nice. We found many people on the way up and down as it was a beautiful day. The trail itself was a little muddy but it has lots of rocks laid on it which makes it little easy to walk.
The view from the top is amazing. You could see lake Sammamish and Bellevue down town from up there. There were lots of paragliders taking off from there which was quite a site to observe. Note: on the way up you will reach a big platform where you may find people sitting. This is a nice stop to rest but continue a few more mins forward and you will find the paragliding spot.
Overall it was a difficult hike given the steepness but it was definitely worth it. The view from the top and seeing the brave people taking off for paragliding is amazing. Definitely recommend it.
