You must purchase a State Discover Pass prior to parking in one of the two lots. You can buy one at the North Bend Ace Hardware or online and print it. Little Si is the little sister to Mount Si. The trail is easier with less elevation, but the view from the top is just as breathtaking with views of Snoqualmie Valley and Rattlesnake Mountain. The trail is often covered in snow and difficult to trek through much of the year and many hikers suggest this as a summer hike. The beginning section is the steepest part, so don’t get disheartened! The trail is well-traveled and marked with signs. You will likely see rock climbers along the trail. Dogs are allowed off-leash, but it is best to keep your dog on the leash because of the heavy traffic on this trail. Show more

SEASONAL ROAD CLOSURE: Roads leading to this trailhead are subject to seasonal closure. For more information, please visit https://www.dnr.wa.gov/MountSi. This is a great kid-friendly hike with well-laid gravel, beautiful mountain views, and mossy trees. Accessibility: The trail surface is gravel or wooden bridges. It is typically at least 3 feet wide. Although much of this trail has a gentle grade (3% or less), near the trailhead the slope is estimated to be steep and exceed 12% grade where assistance may be needed. Users have reported that there is one bridge with stairs, at about the 0.4 mile mark when heading clockwise, that is not accessible without assistance. This section is also marked with a waypoint as hikers using mobility equipment may need to turn around there and make the loop into an out-and-back adventure instead.Show more

The trail begins at the Kamikaze /Teneriffe Falls trailhead and follows a logging road for the first mile where the trail splits. To the right is Kamikaze Falls and the more difficult path up to Mount Teneriffe following the ridgeline. To the left is the "easier" but longer route to Mount Teneriffe, Blowdown Mountain, the connector trail to Mt Si, and several other trails. The majority of the trail follows the old logging road. The trail become less clear after the Mt Si intersection. From here to the top requires way finding skills. Discovery Pass required to park at the trailhead.Show more
