CHS 2 Hike - Little Si & Boulder Garden Loop

Great early season conditioner with a view! We'll hike from the trailhead to the boulder gardens, then down to the Little Si trail, get up to the top of Little Si for a snack break, then back to the trailhead.

  • Moderate
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 6.24 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,631 ft
  • Pace: 2.0-3.0 mph

We'll meet at the Little Si trailhead at 9:15, with a target for boots on trail at 9:30. 

We'll aim for a fairly aggressive 2.5mph pace (conditions allowing), which should get us back to the trailhead around noon. This is a great little hike with a couple of ups and downs, but if it's rainy trails can get a little slick. This is a low elevation hike so snow shouldn't be an issue, but we'll pay attention to the weather.
