Little Si (local hikes series)

Little Si: This is a fairly easy hike that begins and ends with a moderately steep climb. The Discover Pass is required to park here. This is around North Bend off I-90 at exit 32. The parking here is very difficult seeing it is a popular trail and there is not much parking to begin with. Weekends and sunny days require some luck or starting really early. The trail is 4.4 miles round trip. Along the way climbers are often scaling the rocks near the trail. The summit allows views of the Snoqualmie River Valley and is a great place to enjoy lunch or a snack before heading down. The downside is the terrain on this trail. Especially carrying my baby in the backpack, the rocky surfaces that need to be climbed and trees that need to be maneuvered around make it difficult and sometimes a bit questionable. Otherwise, Little Si is great for those not yet ready for nearby Mt. Si.
