A great trail with a good view at the top. Definitely go on a sunny day to catch the paragliders.

The Issaquah High School parking lot is available as a trailhead, about a mile North of the wholly inadequate paraglider parking area indicated. The High School Trail connecting to the Poo Poo Point Trail is a much better walk than hanging on the narrow shoulder of the Issaquah-Hobart Road, which you are stuck with if you choose to park on the residential streets just off the Issaquah-Hobart Road. By the way, there is a great deal of "glass kibble" on the ground there, marking those streets as high car-prowl areas.

Hiked today, first half is the hardest, the view is great, hit trailhead at 7am and parking lot almost full. Super busy trail. Sneakers will get you up this just fine.

I'd call this hike moderate to hard because of it's steep grade. Pretty much constantly uphill. It was very busy on the nice weekend day we went. There were people passing us pretty much every 10-15 minutes. There was hardly any parking so we had to park 1/2 mile away and walk.

This was my first hike but am of above-average fitness level. Agree with it being a moderate level workout. Had to stop to catch my breath a few times and lots of burning in the legs glutes! Nothing too crazy though. We reached the top as the sun was setting on a clear day and the view was just breathtaking. I would definitely recommend to seasoned beginners who are looking to do something more difficult than flat trails. Also, noticed that there was not one spec of trash while we were there. What a pleasant experience :).

The hike to the top is pretty average (lots of trees). The view at the top is nice. Overall the hike is alright, but nothing special.

Pleasant hike with a rewarding view at the end and conveniently located near the Seattle area! It's a solid intermediate hike, trail is busy but well maintained, and there is even a restroom at the top. Note parking is very limited next to the trail heas, but you can easily park at the high school that is just down the road. You can drive to the top as it is a very popular place to go paragliding, which is fun to watch. Would definitely recommend

Switchbacks with no pretty view. Washington has much more to offer.

Took us a bit to find a good parking spot but this was a fun hike! It was really cool watching all of the parachuters take off at the top of the mountain. Down town Issiquah is great. We hit up the Issaqua Brewhouse (Owned by Rogue) after for some good food and drinks!
