Hike to Green Mountain
We went for a quick leg stretch up Green mountain on our way to Kingdom Lakes. I had wanted to go check out the look out cabin for a while but hadn't had the opportunity till now. Recent information on the road and trail head is not abundant or easy to find so I thought I would thrown it in a quick trip report.

It appears that the original spur is not usable now due to recent logging and windfall. We took what I believe is branch 6 up (I think it is the same turn off for Sloan) at around the 6 km mark. It is in amazing shape, probably because it looks like they are just about to start logging in there again. Follow this road to where it meets with the original road. Its not overly obvious but there is a very green clear cut block on the uphill side of the road with a clear ATV trail in the forest just before it (on the right). This is the trail head and parking. The trail/atv track is obvious in the trees to the right of the cut block but is not marked with any signage saying it is the green mountain trail.

The ATV trail is in fantastic shape and easy to follow, approximately 3 km as the crow flies to the top of Green Mountain. However the bugs were miserable when we were in there. About 20 minutes from the trail head there is a fork, we stayed to the left and shortly after the ATV track turned into a trail that switched back through some spectacular meadows up to the Look out cabin.

The cabin is in good shape considering its age. There is a guest book, stove,room for 4 to sleep, table and of course the views can't be beat. There were signs of mice though, but that...
