Muddy, Snowy - Gregory Canyon and Ranger Trails are mostly clear, but most of EM Greenman is snowy and slippery. Passable without traction but be careful. History

Getting forecast...

Lots of steps lead towards the Green Mountain summit.

Overview

Features: Views
Dogs: Leashed

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!).
