Runner Notes

Plenty of fist-sized and smaller rocks on much of the trail.

Description

From near the summit you descend west and then south. You'll traverse Green Mountain along the south side, in a way, mirroring the Green Mountain Trail but higher up the mountain.

This is a nice alternative to the standard trail. There is a hang glider launch area a bit west of Green Mountain's summit.

Flora & Fauna

Not much for trees. Mostly prairie vegetation. Sometimes large herds of deer have been seen here. Rattlesnakes have been spotted on and off of this trail as well.
