“A short but brutally steep, at times, run.”— larry huang
The trailhead is well signed and easy to follow for the first mile. Then it gets a bit confusing because the rocks break up any semblance of a trail. Watch where people go or you may end up going slightly off trail. For the most part, it is easy to follow the trail as there is always someone in front of you, especially on the weekend when it can get really busy. I would recommend coming in the early morning or on a weekday to get parking. I came on a Monday and still had to park in the overflow lot.
It's pretty much a straight shot all the way to the top, with no clear areas for breaks. Once at the top the view is gorgeous - similar to Mt. Si but a lot less work! You can see the haystack on Mt. Si from the top of Little Si.
