Little Mountain Park provides a variety of trails of varying difficulty. At the top, there are views of Skagit Valley and Mt. Vernon. The area is generally quite hilly and in some places can be quite steep so don't be surprised if we take it slow in some places.

The trails in the area are more-or-less regularly maintained and even changed. For this reason, getting an accurate mileage and elevation gain can be difficult so what's posted above is in the ballpark of what we'll be doing but is still likely to be off by a bit.

Prior to signing up for this hike, please take into account the following:

  • Adults only (≥18 yrs old).
  • We'll be going at a casual pace.
  • We will be hiking rain or shine though if conditions prove dangerous then we'll adjust (or cancel) the hike as needed.
