Little Si hike is very popular among beginners and families since it's easy and scenic. A 4.7 mi (7.56 km) round trip will get you to the elevation of 1300 ft (396.24 m). When you start the trail, it may seem steep, but after half a mile it levels out. At 0.3 and 0.5 mile of the route, hikers can transition to the Mount Si trail if they want to. The trail passes through the woods where you can see huge rocks and close to the summit you can even observe some stunning views on the North Bend valley and the town. Mount Washington can also be seen on a clear day.
