Amazing lookout, just 5 minutes outside of Parksville, British Columbia.

Amazing lookout just outside of Parksville, British Columbia. From Parksville, drive towards Coombs and turn left off of Bellevue Rd. Then take the left onto Little Mountain Road and drive to the top parking lot. You can park at the bottom of the hill and run up the steep incline in case your car can't make the 40 degree climb to the top. From the parking lot, jump over the concrete barrier and follow the trail to the look out.

This place is especially beautiful around sunset and sunrise. Watch the weather and check to see if it is going to be a clear day. You get an incredible view of Mt. Arrowsmith

Be careful with kids/ dogs of the cliffs edge.

Cool spot

Little Mtn is a pretty neat spot to chill for an evening and watch the sunset. Set up your hammock among the arbutus trees and just chill.

Astrophotography

Not much of a hike for us. We kind of cheated and drove up. Great location for astrophotography since it has minimal light pollution.
