Personal Recommendations:

This trail is crazy, I don't know if I was just having an off day but I don't remember this as the most pleasant hike. Definitely choose the Big House trail if you haven't done that one once you reach the saddle. If you feel led to head toward Little House, prepare yourself to walk along the ridgeline for what feels like forever before finally reaching the lookout point.
