Mountain Biking Green Lake Trail

The Green Lake Trail is great as an out-and-back from town that's very climbable, with an awesome high alpine reward at the top. Turning around and coming down it's a ripping descent, but quite pedally in spots and tight through the trees.

    The Green Lake trail would be awesome to do as an out-and-back, with a not-too-steep grade that's climbable, but still a heck of a lot of fun on the return trip!
