I hiked from the bottom to the top even though the road was open! I met two hikers with a cute german shepherd puppy who were impressed b/c they said they were too out of shape to do the hike I did!!!
Woman at the lookout was amazed that I hiked all the way up!
Great hike with the dog. Good biking too. Nice views of Salish sea and mt baker
Looks like a lot of changes have happened since I was last up there. Maybe I'll stop in next time I'm in Mt. Vernon.
Drove to the top, hiked down, hiked up.
We hiked up.
Everyone enjoyed this minor detour off the freeway. Maps and pictues at http://www.willhiteweb.com/washington/mount_vernon/little_mountain_park_134.htm
A decent place to take the kids.
Went up there and looked around... Some good views to the south, west & north.
I will probably take BearQueen here in the near future. Views are good for this nice city park like summit.
FZTE and I drove to Mount Vernon to see the independent German mountaineering movie "North Face" playing at a local theater. As a result of arriving an hour early, I looked over at the small wooded peak located south of the city and said, "I wonder if it is possible to summit that?" It was... and the views were outstanding. Little effort, big reward. Highly recommended.
