Little Si


Day Hike - Little Si & Boulder Garden Loop

Sunday morning hike up Little Si via the Boulder Garden Loop at a 1.5-2.0 mph pace. 5.6 miles - 1,700' elevation gain. This is a mentored hike leader trip for Steph by Beth.

  • Easy/Moderate
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 5.6 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,700 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 1,550 ft
  • Pace: 1.5 to 2.0 mph

Meet up at 7:45 am sharp in the Little Si overflow parking lot west of the main lot found at SE Mt Si Rd and 434 Ave SE. Note: there is a trail that connects this lot with the main parking lot.  

After introductions, we'll go over the route and current trail conditions. There are two toilets in the main parking lot. Discover Pass is required.

Little Si is a small rocky bluff located in the  North Bend area. With relatively steep inclines bookending this hike, this primarily north to south route is perfect for building up endurance and may provide some magnificent views of the valley and the surrounding peaks--Mount Si and Mount Washington can easily be viewed from the summit on a clear day. 

We will be travelling at the comfortable pace of 1.5 to 2.0 mph, depending on group dynamics. If summiting Little Si is relatively easy for you and you are looking for faster-paced hikes, this is not the trip for you. The ideal participant for this trip has hiked 1,500 feet of elevation gain within a month of this hike at 1.5-2.0 mph. We hike as a group. 

Full details will be emailed soon after registration closes. Please contact the leader with any questions:
