The tag hiking=yes is mainly used in combination with tourism=information and information=* to signify that these have something to do with hiking. E.g. a map with hiking routes of the region information=map or a guidepost for hikers information=guidepost.

With amenity=parking, it is also used to mark trailhead parking spaces.
