For those who have never hiked little Si, this is a much easier alternative to Big Si. This is a very scenice, well shaded, less traffic, and much easier to hike than it's next door neighbor. Little Si is well worth the hike up and most of all, it's breath taking views from the summit.
Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash at all times!
A Discover Pass is required for parking. You can purchase one at most stores including Fred Meyer and REI for $30.00 plus tax.This pass is good for one year. You can also purchase a day pass for $10.00. Unlike most state parks, you can not purchase a day pass at this park.
There is also the option of carpooling from Issaquah. I'll be at the Issaquah Transit Center parking garage from 8:00 and 8:30 am. ( At the corner of 17th and Newport Way ). If anyone else would like to carpool or provide transportation to the park, please post it on the comment board on the website.

From I-90 East, take exit 31, North Bend and proceed north on Bendigo Blvd S. In less than one mile, turn right on E North Bend Way and proceed a little more than one mile to Mount Si Road and turn left. Just after crossing the river and rounding a bend to the right, look for the new trailhead parking lot on your left.
