Love this hike, definitely a climb but so worth the view. Got up early and did it at sunrise, there was still a layer of fog on the water and the ship-man it made for a beautiful hike. It’s a challenge but a goody. Parking is limited so I recommend getting there early!

Pretty views. You walk along the water on the bluffs.

Hike is okay. The view is nothing spectacular up top. When I got back at 10am Sunday, the parking lot was full, so get there early.

First hike in the PNW and although it was great to get out... this hikes “work to reward” (views) ratio was lackluster.

Magical afternoon along the river! Only one there, so peaceful and my dog especially loved being right next to the river, we both got in quite a few times! Easy lil flat trail and parking right off the road, no crazy long dusty potholey roads lol ;) Loved it!

parking wasn't bad. the trail was fairly easy at the beginning. starts to get a slight incline a bit later but overall was an easy and relaxing hike. The way back is worse though because its mostly up hill. Seeing the old kiln is cool and if you hike past that for a mile is the river which you can eventually go down to if you want. The path to the river is a bit narrow so be careful. I'd go again. I went during the week in the early afternoon.

I went at 10 am on a Friday morning and it was uncomfortably packed. There were at least two scout groups of about ten to fifteen kids, and two adult groups of about ten each later up the trail. Not to mention the numerous single and double hikers. Because of the crowds the hike became unbearably slow and wasn’t tranquil. I guess I am a bit of a curmudgeonly hiker.

Having said the above, Pros: pretty views, lovely foliage, usually nice weather during the summer. Cons: going very slowly due to getting stuck behind so many crowds, listening to lots of other people’s conversations, stopping often to let others pass the opposite direction, difficulty finding parking.

I will say that this is a great hike for children because it has a fun payout for not too much effort. Just be sure to use the bathroom before you get to the trailhead because the bathrooms there are so gross.

I hope you all have a better experience than I did. :-) Happy hiking!

Great little trial took 2.5 hours I'm not sure if the map is wrong or if the actual trail is gone but you still make it from beginning to end in 6.2 miles beautiful woodlands and river!

great training hike.
From Chuckanut it is much more difficult than from the upper parking lot or from the parking lot at barrel springs road.
great view from the top.

we hiked here in the evening, didn't have enough time to hike the whole thing but we enjoyed the 2 miles or so we did hike, trail starts out in the trees then goes down a large hill to the spit. good spot for bird watching, we saw bald eagles. nice ocean view with the mountains in the distance.

Since today was a hot and hazy August day I thought the shade on the trail would be a nice way to stay cool.
Overall, the shady center of the trail was the best part in my opinion. The first part and final parts of the trail are a little steep. I feel like Little Si is more challenging than the views are worth. However it's very well maintained and traveled.

Walking on the Spit was great. going out to the light house was way too much for me to do. Starting from the parking lot down to the beach, and out to the log stuck in the ground was 1.75 miles. Just enough for me to do. My wife as able to walk quit a distance more. The hill heading back up from the brach has an incline of about 40 deg. Quite steep. we than walked on the upper trails which was a lot flatter and easy to walk.
Getting on the spit there is a fee of 3$ for the day. well worth it.

Climbed on a hot day and the shade in the fern forests was great. One of my favorite hikes in Washington.

Well marked trail, great forest terrain. There are some burned areas to get through, and the top is a little disappointing with no viewpoint and lots of logging. I went through to Rattlesnake Lake and it was very cool, also shorter than turning around and going back down.

Excellent view. Pleasant weather. Right time to go.

Great trail for the family. Some small challenges but easy enough to get through without feeling completely drained. Still need to bring your water and a snack for the summit. Fantastic views!

The map that is associated with this hike takes you to the straight up and back, not the loop. We didn’t make it to the top as it started to get really hot and we knew we entered from the wrong trail head. Discovery pass is required which we didn’t know being new to the area. It was a beautiful hike but water was dried up. Not a soul on the trail which was a little strange but all in all it was a good work out if nothing else.

Gorgeous view on a sunny day! Went early to beat the heat and parking was no problem.

We ended going up against trend and climbing up the cliffs. It’s a good workout (ended up with 44 flights on my fit bit) but still enjoyed ourselves. Hiked with a canine companion who loved the beach and did great on the trail.

I would totally do this again to enjoy that view and the wildflowers.

Beautiful woodsy and easy hike! I loved the river spot! Sometimes you just don't want to climb 3,000 feet!

on Little Si Trail

Great trail to warm the bones up on. My wife and I did it in an afternoon. The greatest challenge is finding a place to park. Both the main and overflow parking lots were full as well as the parking for the city park across the river. We parked almost two miles from the trail head. Beware of parking illegally as the King County Sheriff actively patrols the “No Parking” areas paired with a tow truck. We saw a couple of vehicles get towed.

The trail itself is mild to moderate with only one spot towards the top that gets a little more difficult (wet jagged rocks). It’s crowded so get used to sharing the trail with many people. Otherwise enjoy the view!

Lovely flora!
Easy to moderate hike. Peaceful. Not very busy. Lots of views of........trees! Big-leaf maple, Douglas fir, redwood/cedar,
Lots of blackberries, huckleberry, salmon berry, barberry (look a bit like blueberries), elderberry
Common holly, western sword fern, lady’s fern
Lady’s glove, large tree fungus, henbit dead-nettle,
Spiders, bumblebees, black slugs
Only a few mosquitoes in a few spots. No bites.
Beautiful moss and lichen covered boulders
Get Google Lens app if you can. It’s fun!

We came to Little Si after a small hike at Snoqualmie Falls. Little Si is an awesome moderate level hike. We had our 6 and 8 year old boys with us and they loved this hike compared to Snoqualmie, which they thought was boring. Little Si is nicely shaded, has a lot of areas to climb and explore, and is a great way to spend the day. I think it took us about 4 hours to complete it, trailhead to peak and then back down, including a few breaks and a picnic on the peak. The views at the peak are beautiful and well worth the hike. My family would definitely do this one again.

Light and steady ascend 2/3 the rest is steep. View is okay.

I went on this hike with my daughter and three grandkids. The oldest is 9 the middle is 6 and the baby is going to be one tomorrow. It was a lot of fun. My daughter carried the baby in a front pack and the rest of us had packs with lunch and necessities. The kids slowed down on the beach part. Not because they were tired there were just so many treasures to be found. I would recommend this to family’s.

Nice trail! Light traffic this morning, started just before 10. A little cloudy but helped to stay cool and the views at the top were decent even though Mount Si wasn’t visible.

It was a beautiful trail. Very easy to walk. My aging mother, and arthritic elderly dog, were both able to handle this trail with no complications. I would classify this more as a walk in the woods than as a hike, but the scenery was beautiful.

Great hike! Brought a couple of dogs and they loved it. Especially the extra hike to the water. It was pretty easy overall. Some parts are pretty narrow and we got eaten by mosquitos. But it was very pretty!
