Day Hike - Green Mountain: Gold Creek Trail

Great day hiking, views limited due to haze.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Trail well marked and easy to follow, moist throughout with occasional mud puddles easily gotten through. No hazards. cold wind at top of Green Mountain.

Arrived at trailhead following Bing search directions easily. Large parking area at trailhead. Small (one person) restroom. trail with loose gravel all the way making legs work a bit more than usual. Followed Gold Creek trail to Vista trail on top of Green Mountain. Had lunch at viewpoint. Took Beaver Pond trail back passing a large pond with lots of frogs croaking. Then connected with Plummer Trail back to gold Creek trail near beginning, then Gold Creek back to trailhead.  All trails were multi-use, we encountered one group of ORV motorcycles on Plummer Trail on way back to trailhead, otherwise did not see a lot of people on the trail.
