This trail is an old forest service road that provided access to the Hurricane Hill lookout when it was in use. The paved trail is wide and easy to follow, staying level for the first 1.2 mile. It is another easy mile to the summit, with moderate elevation gain—but carry water.
The trail does not cross any streams. The trail offers great views the entire way. Mount Angeles (east) and Mount Olympus, with its multiple summits, are hard to miss on a clear day. In less than 1.4 mile the Little River trail descends steeply (right). There are good views of the Bailey Range across the valley.
