Little Ranger Peak Trail is a 6 mile out and back trail located near Enumclaw, WA that features a great forest setting and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and mountain biking and is accessible from June until October.
Nice, quick workout. Not much to see on the way up or down. Viewpoint is blocked by jagged rock that must be scaled to get a good view. May be a sketchy climb for some. Relative to other trails in the area this falls short, but any hike is better than no hike. I ran into several mountain bikers rather fellow hikers. Looked like a good trail for biking.
In and of itself, this trail is somewhat unremarkable. To clarify, the forest views are beautiful. Though for the big payoff views, you would either continue from this trail to the SSW to check out the Palisades Ridge, or head ESE to Noble Knob. Both of those views are five stars!
Nice trail with fairly good trail markings. Just off Hwy 410 near Buck Creek. Trail head is on the North side of the road. You can either park on the side of the road or if you park on the other side of the creek there is another trail head parking lot.
Mostly forest views with lush green vegetation all around. On top at the peak is the ridge where if you are adventurist enough you can make your war out to the point for partial views of Mt Rainier.
