A steep trail snaking up the north and western ridges of Green Mountain.

Nick Wilder

Features: Birding — Fall Colors — River/Creek — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Runner Notes

The upper half of the trail is very tricky to run: steep, rocky, and a somewhat loose surface.

Description

This trail branches left off the Ranger Trail 0.3 mi. southeast of the Green Mountain Lodge. It contours around a ridge, then follows a drainage past the junction of the Saddle Rock Trail. Up until this point, the trail is smooth and pretty easy.

After the intersection, the trail changes character quite a bit. From here all the way to the top is quite rocky and steep, and MUCH harder. After passing a spring, the trail climbs a rocky ridge to a saddle, then switchbacks to end at the summit of Green Mountain, elevation 8,144 ft. Enjoy amazing views in all directions!

Check out the Green Mountain West Ridge Trail if you want an easier option to get to the Green Mountain summit.
