Lovely weeknight hike! Very shaded. Head up Gregory canyon to ranger to green Mountain and down saddlerock. Saddleock up is very strenuous! Tons of wildflowers and wildlife!

My only complaint is the lack of signage about the 20 ft ladder on the portion of the trail that was washed out a few years back--one sign at the top. Luckily the dogs were able to get down along the side of the drop.

The trailhead can get packed and full in the busy season so go early or park near Chataqua and walk over. This is a nice workout of a hike up and up through the beautiful foothills forest but is pretty much all incline with not so much scenic eye candy... UNLESS you take one of the connecting trails (Ranger trail) up to the Green Mountain summit which is fantastic and well worth the extra trip. Also, starting from Realization Point on Flagstaff Rd will help take off a bunch of the elevation gain of the hike and get you closer to the top of Green Mountain for the beautiful views. Definitely great exercise when starting from the bottom!!
