Little Mountain is one of the easier summits to reach in the Wasatch, but before today, I had never been to the summit. I had passed it on my way to and from Lookout Peak, and once when returning from Grandview, but just hadn't taken the little jaunt to the top on either of those hikes.

On a beautiful day, we had the summit and the Little Mountain Ridge all to ourselves.

The little peak between the hills in the center of the image is the summit of Little Mountain

in the far distance.

Once on top of the ridge, most people head south for the view of Little Dell and Parley's
Canyon, but the true summit is to the north. We had to break trail along the ridge, but
there have been elk here at some point.
