First time to combine Little with Big Elephant Head. One suggestion is to do Little first. Most groups will avoid Little if done after the pretty strenous climb up to Big. We had a fantastic day and a very good group for this all day outing. It's a 2 hour drive from where we live, but well worth the trip. Spectacular views from both Little and Big. The scramble up to top of Big never fails to deliver, but be aware it's not for everyone, especially those with some fear of heights.

The trail to Little was unexpectedly easy to follow. It's obvious a lot of people go up there. A good amount of water flowing in the canyon below Big. The road is in unbelieveably good shape. Last time up a couple of years back, I had to park short of the TH parking lot. This time was no problem.
