“This is a great hike to Green Lakes with great views. Don't expect the place to yourself though, as it's popular!”— Casey Tucker

• This is very popular for horses.
• You can camp at the lake.
This trail is very scenic, passing many waterfalls and crossing a stream four times. The trail is plenty wide at the start, easily allowing 3-4 people abreast, and gets smaller as you carry on, narrowing to a bit wider than singletrack at the end.
You can either head back the way you came or take a side trail down, or head towards Broken Top or South Sisters if you are feeling fresh and frisky.
