It was a good hike . I definitely saw some criminal types hanging around the parking lot so I didn’t venture super far from vehicle but fun all the same

Great trail! So many beautiful sites. Great workout but, not too hard. Be sure to take the small off trails to the overlook and waterfall on the backside of the lake.

One of my favorite hikes in the area! Beautiful, well maintained trail with a sweet, woodsy fragrance that's impossible to describe. Linger at the lake for a swim & packed lunch.
Will be a little challenging for new hikers but on the easy side for stronger ones.

Nice trails throughout. Parking lot has an awesome lookout point.

beautiful hike with great views and lookouts. although very easy to lose the trail and get lost. don't recommend without a GPS if you are doing it for the first time.

Quick but invigorating 2-hour hike with lots of Fall color on this late October day. Be sure to take the .2 mile hop out to the view point overlooking Bellingham Bay and the San Juan islands, and the .75 mile loop around the little lake. (This makes for a total distance 5 miles, up and back to the parking lot.) Enjoy a handful of pretty spots on the lake edge for snacks and the pretty view. A classic Bellingham hike with easy-moderate difficulty.

Hiked on Saturday 21s of Oct. Weather was perfect and hike was very colorful with fall foliage.

Lake was very pretty, with loop around entire lake. We were graced why the presence of a bald eagle in a tree on the west side of the lake, too.

Trail is in perfect condition. If you haven’t hiked the trail, you find the trail head in the Larrabee State Park lot, on the East side of Chuckanut drive, just south of the Larrabee State Park Campground. Even on a Saturday, the trail wasn’t heavily used. A few mountain bikers, possibly 6 other groups of hikers. .

I would rate this hike 5 stars, however; I could not find the 2nd half of the trail. Ended up climbing down a rock cliff only to find that it dead ended at the beach. Had to backtrack and take another route to get back to the parking lot. Other than that, it was a great hike. Fairly easy, well maintained trails, gorgeous views and abundant wildlife.

The lake was beautiful and echoey, also the mushrooms were cool

The trails are certainly five star, but I got back to my truck to find it had been broken into. I’ve hiked there six times now and the damage to my truck was $1200 so that comes to $200 a hike. My problem is, once again the Rangers have done absolutely nothing to catch the person doing this damage so it’s just not worth going there to me. If you decide to hike there be vigilant and keep an eye out for shady characters. The window repair place that repaired my vehicle said they’ve repaired several vehicles with damage from Little Mountain Park.

very easy hiking. nice afternoon hike

Easy walk (I wouldn’t call it a hike). Great views, got to see some sea otters and some birds. Easy for all levels. Make sure to arrive early to get a parking spot

Nice offering of trails - different skill levels and inclines. Mountain bike trails make for easy hiking w/ switchbacks. Hiking only trails were a better workout w/ steeper inclines. Don’t use “Directions” provides thru this app - search by Little Mountain Park and park at top of road (or one of trailheads along the way). Bring lunch and eat at one of the two lookouts. If you want to park at bottom so you can climb first, park at Silver Arrow Bowmen archery range.

I agree with the previous reviews. Poorly marked after the 3/4 (lighthouse)mark. Turn around there and go back the way you came. Pretty scenery and views.

Dont take all loop, you lost your way. I recommend you to go through the lighthouse point loop.

Nice hike and views for 3/4 of trail. The last 1/4 the trail disappeared and was very difficult to find a way out. This app helped! Next time I would do 3/4 to the point and backtrack.

Nice hike to a nice lake that’s perfect for swimming!

Great little hike. Nice views of the bridge. We had read the previous reviews and did not attempt to hike around the perimeter. For families, you still need to watch little hikers near a few points along the edges.

I came to the mountain early (before the park was open) and used another entrance up the road. It has a lot of little trails to use with beautiful scenery. The top view is worth it. I was able to run most of it but near the top some of the trails got too steep to run. The main view is nice but if you follow the walking trail just left of the gazebo there is a nice rock to sit on and take in the view.

Beautiful casual hike but I don’t recommend trying to loop it. Next time we’ll stay on the main trail and hike it as an out and back. Everyone is right. It’s a poorly marked trail and can be frustrating if trying to loop.
Still worth it though!

moderate 2.2 miles up with a few spots to swim. water is warm. mosquitos are out. if you find a gray lululemon ballcap, you can keep it :)

very easy, but slightly steep going up. bring your bathing suits...saw many people enjoying the lake.

Car got broken into at the trailhead camping for one night. Good one night backpacking trip but not worth it if your car is gonna get broken into.

BEWARE!!! I parked for an hour and three minutes this afternoon and my window was busted when I got back to my car. Going to cost me hundreds of dollars for a shitty hike.

As a beginner to running I found the hills challenging but the trail was paved and simple for me to follow. Great views.

It was a nice little hike to and around the lake. My teenage daughter even enjoyed it, and had no problem keeping up.

Great hike. Way more of a challenge than we assumed. Should be ranked moderate not easy. Especially if you do the whole loop with the oyster dome view and carry a 25lb baby carrier. Steep in places and long. My tracker said 9.5 miles my husbands said 10. Beautiful nonetheless.

Easy, plenty of places to wander! Beautiful views

Beautiful views but terrible trail marking. We went clockwise around the loop, and somehow ended up going an extra mile up and down some rock scrambles that brought us to water and a cliff face about 3/4 around the loop. Oops. We had to back track. Would love if the park could mark the trail a bit better.

I’m not sure if I completely agree with this being super kid friendly- it was a LOT of fairly steep switchbacks on the way up. We had two five year olds with us, and they made it, but barely. The lake is cute, the trail is well-maintained.
