The trailhead is if you start at the top, go down and back up. Little Mountain Park, comprising 522 acres, is located south of Mount Vernon City limits. Follow the 1.5 mile paved road to the top of Little Mountain, an elevation gain of 934 feet. A covered viewpoint provides a spectacular look at the Skagit Valley, San Juan Islands, Olympic Mountains, and the tulip fields. The north viewpoint opened in the spring of 2005 with a spectacular view of Mount Baker. The park also provides numerous hiking trails and serves as an excellent hang gliding location. Come and bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the scenic Skagit Valley.

Great little find! Drove to top to check the views then hiked around for a couple hours! The only thing I did not like is all the strange cars full of suspicious people/kids doing what they were not supposed to be doing! Other than that a cool spot to do a quick easy adventure or just take in the views!

Many trails, many different ways to go. Worth the walk. Even a road all the way to top, with a few pull offs up the way, if you want to start from anywhere. Great views, perfect for all ages, dogs and children.
