“A steady singletrack climb with unbelievable views of the Black Canyon.”— WookieStick69 Thomas
From there, you'll begin steadily climbing Green Mountain. From Exclamation Point, the vertical gain is around 900' over the course of about 2 miles. Switchbacks help to reduce the grade a bit with a few intermittent stair sections. Upon reaching the top, Green Mountain provides a 360-degree view of the area, including an additional perspective of the canyon.
Summer is one of the best times to experience this hike, as rains make the trail nice, soft, and relatively free of rocks. Be sure to bring water along with you, but know that there's plenty of shade along the way.
