This was my 3rd hike in 2020 that started from the Slate Creek TH, but this time I went to Little Mount Ord instead of Mount Ord. I got the idea for this one from a trip report that @wallyfrack posted recently.

Most of this hike was on forest roads: FR 27, FR 626, and FR 1688. From FR 1688 there is a short off-trail stroll to the summit of Little Mount Ord that is about 0.2 mile each way.

This is a decent workout hike, although the views at the Little Mount Ord summit are not nearly as good as those atop Mount Ord.

If I was to go to Little Mount Ord again I think that I would go up to Mount Ord, and then descend an off-trail ridgeline down to Little Mount Ord, and then go back to the TH the same way that I went today. I think that would be about the same distance as this hike, although it would probably be around 4,500 feet of AEG.

There were several blooming wildflowers to be seen, although they were few and far between.
