Great hike. Went Sunday the 22nd. Beautiful views. Fog came over when we made it up the lookout, but it was still worth it. I would've waited but my little son was on my back and wanted to get him back down the trail. Micro spikes and poles would have been nice, but it is doable without. My wife had sneakers and made it with a couple slips, no falls. I had just regular hiking boots with no problems. Just be smart about where you step. We will definitely be back.

Nice easy 3 mile trail on the edge of Lake Whatcom. Very close to town, but feels remote. Trail is wide and very well maintained. Light use the day we walked it.

Great scenery at the top. There is a spot called the "haystack", where you can see to Mt. Rainer and Seattle on a clear day. Really great hike.

This is for going up and down the old trail.We reached the parking lot at around 6.45am, and it was pretty dark. Parking lot had slush and ice, so our group ended up putting up microspikes right from the parking lot, which turned out to be a good decision. The ramp and most of the was covered with ice and snow. Just a little extra care needed.
Trailhead is about 0.25 miles from the parking lot and we started the hike around 7 am, sun was just beginning to break, but still dark enough that we had to use headlamps for good 15 mins or so.

A pretty steep hike, previously I had always taken the new trail up. I had come down the old trail, so knew I needed to spot diamonds on the tree for navigation.Trail for the most was compact snow till the almost 2 miles where it meets the new trail.
After that point the area is pretty clear of trees and exposed, offering pretty amazing views.From this point onwards the snow was pretty fresh and a little icy for some parts. We took the straight approach to the peak, and it turned out to be pretty steep, somewhere around 30-40 degrees of incline. We reached the summit of the mailbox around 9.30ish something, spent couple of minutes before getting down. It was pretty cold and windy on the top, forcing me to put both my layers, but the panoramic views was amazing with clear sky.
Getting down was a little tricky on the slope, it would have been nice to have an ice axe. I was using foot marks made while going up to get the hold but of them gave way and I slipped good 20-30 ft before arresting the fall.
Were down by 11.45 at the parking lot. Overall a good day and a nice trip.

Nice little hike thru the woods right in the city

Amazing hike, Mesmerizing view, Worth the hike!!

When I saw moderate, I figured it'd be a little more trail and a bit less walk by the beach. Still beautiful.

Went up little Si after hiking Mt Si yesterday. Was a fun hike. Not too long or hard, no snow and only one trail runner in the morning.

Snow and ice on the last mile - micro spikes help else it can be rather slippery. Beautiful hike overall.

Did this 1/22 with some snow and ice on the trail, highly recommend micro spikes. I had no problem with them. real nice views at the look out point with a snowy/foggy gorge! I do look forward to going back in the spring
