This is an easier trail in the area that allows you to see both the Upper and Lower Green River Lakes. It begins by taking the Highline Trail. At the intersection with Clear Creek, you will continue on towards "Three Rivers Park" (this is what the trail signage shows). This will continue to be the Highline Trail. Just before you get to Upper Green River Lake, you will take the lakeside trail on your right. This follows the waters edge and continues down the green river back to "Three Rivers Park". Cross the foot bridge and head back to the parking lot via the Lower Green River Lake Lakeside Trail.Show more

Through-Hike option going from Green River Lakes to Elkhart Park with some off-trail navigation over Knapsack Col between Peak lake and Titcomb basin. Shuttle or transportation is needed. One option is The Great Outdoor Transportation Company located in Pinedale that can move either you or your vehicle. This route climbs steadily out of the Green River Lakes trail-head, past the stunning and large jade lakes, up past Squaretop mountain with camping options at Beaver Park and Three Forks Park. From there it climbs switchbacks up to Trail Creek park where the trail departs the CDT and turns left toward Vista Pass. From vista pass the trail enters a long rocky gully marked with rock carins and intermittent tread before rounding a lefthand corner and popping out at Dale lake - featuring stunning views looking back down the Green River Valley and the last 18 miles of travel. Exposed camping options exist at Dale Lake and larger and significantly more stunning Peak lake at 10,500 feet. The trail skirts clockwise around peak lake and climbs past hanging glaciers on the headwaters of the mighty Green River up toward the imposing Knapsack Col. While the official trail ends, a lightly beaten path and carins mark the way. Steep climbing turns into steep 2nd class scrambling up to the col at 12,250 feet. A cornice and snowfield on the east side can hold late into August providing a serious obstacle. Looking east, three options exist to descend. Leftmost is a 15-20ft gully between vertical rocks that drops down to high angle boulder field. (upper 2nd class to 3rd class.) The middle option involves stepping down 6-10ft of cornice onto the same high angle boulder field. Caution should be exercised here as a slip on the snow could be dangerous. After 200 feet of descending the high angle boulder field a pleasant glissade option opens up. From there, hang left to avoid the Twins glacier and the river running under the snow. Continue downhill into the Titcomb basin where the trail will become steadily more existent again. Camping options exist in rock shelters above the upper Titcomb lake, at Mistake Lake, and on the hillside on the west side of the lakes. Most other camping sites are illegal due to lake and trail proximity. From here there are day hike opportunities up Fremont Peak and Indian Pass. Next the trail rolls over granite mounds and decends on balance for the next 12+ miles passing classic Island lake, Seneca Lake, Hobbs Lake, Photographer's Point, and eventually into sub-alpine forest and the 9,000ft Elkhart Park Trailhead.Show more
