Runner Notes

A steep and continuous climb, but easier than the E.M. Greenman Trail if you're headed to the summit of Green Mountain.

Description

Though very steep, this trail is fairly smooth and well-made. Tons of steps (wooden and rocks) get tiring, but the footing is more secure than the E.M. Greenman Trail (another popular route to the summit of Green Mountain). Be sure to turn around and enjoy the views as you get higher. Boulder shines below and peaks of the continental divide loom in the distance.

At the end, you'll intersect with Green Mountain West Ridge which you can take a short ways to the summit (don't miss it!).

Fast cruising on this part of the trail - it's much harder up higher!

Includes miles in city, and other trails to get up to top of Green Mountain. Very enjoyable run. 10mi
