  • Moderate

  • Elevation Gain: 600 ft
  • Pace: 2 mph

We'll be meeting at 9:00 AM at the far end of the Green Mountain/Gold Creek parking lot by the Tin Mine trailhead sign.  If you've not been here before, look past the restrooms.  Please remember to display your Discover Pass.  

 This route is known to get muddy so trekking poles are recommended.  We'll start out with the uphill  in the first mile, then the route rolls after that.  Due to recent flooding, we'll not be entering the mine, but we will be passing the entrance.  The final section of trail follows the Davis section which is flat and edges a wetland.   We'll exit the main trailhead and enter the parking area to complete the loop. 

Hopefully there will be some lingering maple color and mushrooms.
