Beautiful forest, well maintained, easy to follow trails. Some tough spots inexperienced hikers but we did it! The lookout points at the top make it well worth the trip.
best trails rain or shine moderate to severe trails
Simple little trail system. 1st time out since fracturing my ankle. There was a few challenging sections for my ankle but overall real easy. Any day playing outside is a good day!
The park is in great shape. There's actually about 10 miles of trails in the park but, unfortunately Alltrails' map is missing over half of them. Get a current map at littlemountainpark.org/map
Lots of fun to ride.
Today was my first day there. I hiked Sidewinder, Up Only, well, ran down that one, and walked up Huff and Puff, then ran down it. It was a great workout. The lookouts show a great view of Mt. Vernon and North and the main parking areas lookout had a great view south of Mt. Vernon. I plan on going back to try other trails. It has trails for all types of experienced hikers and bikers. Free parking. No passes needed.
Lots of tiny trails from easy to hard awesome view best spot for bikers!!!!
I hike this hill all the time. Trail builders have done a ton of work; there are many options. I wish I was a mountain biker, because it really caters to that. Pictures and story are on my blog.
There are several relatively short trails on little mountain. There is even a carved head on a large rock on one trail.
