Little Ring Mountain, also called Little Ring Peak, is a tuya in the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. It lies at the head of the Squamish and Soo Rivers.[1] Part of the Mount Cayley volcanic field, its most recent eruption most likely occurred during the Fraser Glaciation.[2]

This peak is so-called because it is similar to the larger and officially named Ring Mountain just to the south.
