Beautiful trail, well maintained, clearly marked. Mostly shaded, plenty open mountain meadows to spot flowers, and what a beautiful lake at the end.

Moderate hike with great views at the top. Park in town near third street and walk from there (approximately 1/2 mile walk to trail head). Cannot park at the trail head because it is private property, all the more reason to grab a beer in town as you walk back to your car. Cutthroat abound in Green Lake, so hike with a fishing pole if you'd like. Very dog friendly with numerous water spots for your dog to cool off along the way.

You can't park on the road or at the trailhead. 3/4 mile hike from the highway but nowhere to park there either...elitist region...

nice trail and not very difficult. Go past the first lake you see and there is a better lake and view at the top.

Favorite Trail!
Running switchbacks feels like a roller coaster, & there's a lake at the top for a cool down :)
