    Green Mountain Trail and Trip Report

    After hearing about Green Mountain for a while we finally visited it, and I am very glad that we did. Itís a wonderful place with 4 major named trails and a myriad of secondary routes that totals about 30 or so miles.
    We headed out in the am from the Gold Creek Trailhead and ventured north to the Campground by way of the Plummer and Beaver Pond trails. From the camping area we then swung south on the Wildcat Trail and started taking secondary routes towards the summit and the views we had heard about. While the views of the Olympic Range from the Plummer trail were great, the panorama from the top was incredible and included Puget Sound, the Cascades, and Mount Rainier. After enjoying the view and a leisurely lunch we headed south to the Gold Creek Trail and then back to the trailhead.
    The weather was superb and made a good trek even better! Many flowers were observed but not identified and many, many people were encountered. Hikers, horses (there was both a Competitive Mounted Orienteering ride and a BCHW work party occurring) mountain bikes, and a few ORVís were on the trail and all seemed to be having a great time.
    As always, more photos, an area trail map, driving directions, trail video, and more can be found HERE
    Minning the Icelandic wonder horse is also featured in the video. Watch her walk down the trail!
