About a foot of snow...great time though!!!

Great trail, well marked and connects to the beaver pond trail, gold creek, Davis or tin mine trail etc. nice big parking lot with pit toilet. Discover pass required. There was roughly 12” of snow on the trail trail and we cut fresh tracks, it was awesome! We love to explore green mountains trail system.

Nice trail that is a 10 minute drive. The view of the mountains is beautiful from the top. Not a challenging trail, but it always has heavy traffic. There are multiple trails that this trail connects to.

not a reveiw but can ride dirt bikes there

Beautiful! One of my favorites so far!! The beginning uphill part was brutal but worth it.

Trail was a wet as expected. Went counter clockwise and got the hard part out of the way and then enjoyed a slow downhill hike.

It was a beautiful stroll! Some muddy areas but nothing you cannot get past. I would definetly not wear tennis shoes on this hike, your feet will get wet. There are so many trails to explore here.

Always an amazing hike! Great little incline the entire way up for an awesome leg workout and super easy going back.
Gets SUPER crowded, we ALWAYS go right after sunrise to beat the crowds and when we make it back to the car the parking lot is packed around 8-9am, otherwise the trail is way too crowded and loud, along with way too many people at the vista overlook/summit. Just beat the crowds, it's so worth it!

trail is in good condition, took the dog for our daily 10 mile hike

took the dog on a rainy day hike, trail was as reviewed moderate but mostly easy except for the rain made some spots tricky even with trekking poles.

I loved it! I was just going to do Gold Creek, but since I had already done the upward trek and still felt good, I opted to keep going for the full loop.

It's important to note that you turn off Wildcat Trail onto a logging road, and Davis trail isn't immediately marked at the bottom of the hill. But I only walked a little further than I should have, and easily found my way back.

A very pleasant hike on a moderately trafficked trail. The trail was a bit muddy but it was late December- so who cares! If you go in a counter-clockwise direction on the loop you will get all the elevation in the first mile and then can have a fast downhill coming back. We went clock-wise so it was a gradual grade upwards and then a steeper decent on the way out. The tin mine was pretty dope, but very wet so we couldn't go too far in. This would be a good spot to take out of towners cuz of the small elevation gain, the interesting mine, and the proximity to Seattle. Also, dogs are allowed, but don't be the asshole who doesn't use a leash...

Great trail, beautiful scenery and lots of mini waterfalls and even a mine!

Beautiful hike! We went in early December. It was chilly and a little muddy, but still very enjoyable. The sound of running water was all along the trail. I went with my 11 and 7 year old daughters who handled it very well. We took the short, steep uphill at the beginning of the hike and enjoyed a long, leisurely downhill as our reward. Definitely plan to do this again!

The trail was a little muddy in spots but otherwise in good shape. We went right and took the challenge of going up hill for the first mile and coasting down. We started around 8:15am and only ran into other people at the end of our walk. There is bathrooms at the trailhead. A discovery pass is required for parking. Enjoyable hike!

nice hike passed through a valley that made the hike mostly flat. it gets steep going up to the vista

went and saw the tin mine and was well worth the hike

Easy to follow and easy on the knees. Spectacular views of Olympics to the east complete with atmospheric perspective. Magnificent

Great day hike, there was quite a few horses on the trail though. Also if you get to the tin mine it's pretty cool but watch where you put your hands in the tunnel... there are spiders on the walls just saying.

Nice hike.

Absolutely loved it. Davis trail was beautiful and we saw a beaver dam and other signs. There were some easy points. watch out for horses.

Good hike. Knocked it out in just under 3 hours carry 60 extra lbs. Flat for the first 2-ish miles but significant increase the last part. A little confusing toward Green Mt Vista. A lot of converging trails.

Great hike in 90 degree weather. Once you get to the vista a nice breeze comes in, a bench and beautiful views. I’m not saying it was easy getting there and then if you follow alltrails map to the end...... oh my, straight up little path with very loose rocks. Once at the end of trail another beautiful view and picnic tables . Going down smooth but watch for loose rocks as it is steep at times. Seems a lot of people like this area, busy trail but not too bad.

Went early with a couple of friends and loved it. Beautiful diverse environment. Good shading that helped with inclines. I wore tennis shoes and my friends had on hiking boots- I definitely slipped more. Trail is well groomed, but there is a fair share of roots and rocks so you need to pay attention. Once you get to Beaver Pond, there is a large clear cut area, maybe fr wild fire ? But allows beautiful views of the Olympics. FYI there is no pond at the top- and we did encounter just a few motorbikes. When u get to top, there isn’t a big wow reveal. Recommend bringing seating pad.

Great hike! I took the Gold Creek trail up, then split off onto the Plummer trail on the way back down. Plummer trail had loose dirt and rocks that made it a bit slick in places. Gold Creek trail was technical in spots but overall a well-marked trail with great views of the San Juan islands. I took the Vista trail at the end and caught a glimpse of Mt. Rainier.

Great spot for a quick hike. Trail was well kept & clean. Not crowded like some other hikes. Plenty of free street parking if you don’t have a discover pass. Beautiful view at the top!

Very difficult, misjudged the jump from moderate to hard on this app. Made it to the top but definitely not for the beginning hiker who thinks they are in shape. Would definitely go June-July when the snow is melted. Fell through the snow into the lake, pretty cold. But all in all breathtaking views of waterfalls and surrounding mountains. Will do again in July

What a great hike!! I loved being able to bring my pup along and see sweeping views of the Puget Sound and a way of distant Seattle skyline. Don’t forget your Discover Pass because there is no way to snag a day permit. Beautiful overcast day with fantastic array of weather!

waterfalls, views and a steady trail. Add on the upper section on wildcat trail for a panoramic view of the Puget Sound.

wildcat trail starts at the wildcat trail head. This is a link of green mountain trail to a logging road that connects to the upper section of wildcat trail. but, still well worth it.
