Description

This two-mile trail cuts through the valley between Green Mountain and Bear Mountain. It's a rugged and rocky trail that climbs almost continuously to a junction with Green Mountain and Bear Peak West Ridge. Expect to navigate steep, often loose terrain and large rocky features. This trail, and its neighboring creek, show distinct signs of flood damage from the September 2013 flooding.
