Hiked 5/28/18, very few other hikers around. Steady incline towards the back end as you reach the summit. Views are amazing along the way definitely stop at exclamation point along the way!! The top has a lot of greenery but if you can stand up high the views are well worth it.

My GF and I hiked this trail a few days ago and really enjoyed the experience. The views from various points along the trail were stunning. From the summit of Green Mountain you can see so much of the surrounding area. A quick note: if you take the detour for Exclamation Point (which we highly recommend) it ends up being a little bit over 7 miles round trip. Also, by way of advance notice, you'll need to take along $20 for the entry permit. While you're there, don't pass up the short .25 mile Chasm View, which provides a safe way to view straight down into the Black Canyon and the Gunnison river below.

Very nice trail with an absolutely stunning view over the canyon from the green mountain vista point. The was almost no one else on the trail...very quiet.

great hike. part of the north rim of Black Canyon National Park. don't skip exclamation point on your way up to the green mountain summit. we hiked it late in the day on memorial day weekend, so the crowds had mostly left by the time we got there. very peaceful and quiet.

Awesome trail in the Black Canyon of Gunnison National Park ($15 for a week pass). No crowds on a Wednesday in August. The views are spectacular the entire way. All-around easy trail but definitely is the longest/most difficult trail on either rim (non inner-canyon trail).
