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

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.

this trail is poorly marked hard to even find the trail head kinda boring not very scenic

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.

This is a flat easy trail. There is no protection from sun or wind. I felt baked even with 30 sunscreen 1 mile in. I recommend starting at the end and going the other way. There is parking at both trailheads.

Lots of trail choices, very well maintained, and great view!

Love all the trails!!! Really nice for short little hikes to do before you go on your most difficult hikes!! I am here almost everyday now!!! But be careful one of the wooden bridges on Nature Trail is broken. Only one of them though! Go here for your first time hiking and if you are want short hikes before your longer difficult hikes!!! A lot of nice people come here hiking! God bless you all and happy hiking!! Be safe in all you do!!

Nice little park of trails. Went to the north viewpoint and then took La-Z-Boy back down. Will come back here to explore more at some point.

2/13/18 Drove to the top and walked down the road to about mid way to start the hike. It was a clear day and the Bonnie and Clyde trail was great with only a couple of down trees. Was neat to see the valley flooded.

Love hiking this trail with my kiddos.

it was a beautiful July day for walking on this Trail. I started at the Mill Town entrance and discovered that going south is prohibited because it is change off and posted no trespassing private property so heading north you walk on a gravel road it was hard to see the River most of the time because of the brush and trees but when you could see it it was pretty. when the road ends there is a trail through the brush you cross over a half rotten train trestle and are right on the River's Edge. that was the nicest part but it doesn't last long as the overgrowth of blackberries makes it too hard to go further. it would be great in a kayak, however at one of the forks in the Delta there is a log Jam that completely closest one of the branches of water, so be careful.

super confusing lots of side trail should be rated as easy

It was alright, not too fun or pretty when you don't have a boat :/ My dog got to swim though and the church in the background beyond the bridge was pretty!

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!

Easy bike and walking path, good to take the dog on for a quick walk.

nice views. trails well maintained and marked. some short steep climbs. mostly under tree canopy except at view areas. nice hike.

Very scenic. Nice place for a family hike and/or dog walk.

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.

I liked the open sky and sun shining right on me. Lots of people on a beautiful Sunday. Lots of dogs and families. It was a little too flat and not quite wild enough for me since I love the forest. However, I will do this again. Walking on gravel was good for core strengthening.

Tight trails, good burms make for solid riding...only road a few trails but definitely good downhill rides. Be cautious though, some turns are posted right up to very large drops, if you don't nail it, you're a bird!

Great for picture taking and if you enjoy tulips. Just not something I would do again.

Great hike for beginners, it's fun and not very difficult. It needs more signs though.
