“A trail that circumnavigates Green Mountain with great views of the city and other mountains.”— Chris 22841
The beginning has some steep uphill sections but eases after a bit. At the large antenna array you'll be on dirt road as you go down the saddle and back up the other side. The summit is just to the left when you reach the high point of the road. Continue down the somewhat steep road down close to the bridge. Just before the paved bike path, turn left onto the singletrack.
Continue to follow the singletrack around the mountain going straight at both 4-way intersections and return to the parking lot.
A herd of elk has been spotted along this trail. There are many wildflowers in the spring and early summer. Preying mantis and large beetles are among the insects on Green Mountain.
