Hiking The Green Mountain / Onahu Creek LoopOperated By: AVA Rafting
From the parking area the Green Mountain Trail climbs through a lush conifer forest. The climb is steady and moderate, but graduates to more gentle grades after the first half-mile, with a few brief steeper inclines every now and then. As the trail levels out you’ll pass a couple of small meadows. Keep an eye out for moose and elk foraging in these fields as you pass. After viewing the meadows, head back to the main trail and turn right to begin heading northbound on the Tonahutu Creek Trail. From the junction the trail skirts around the western edges of the meadow. The trail offers several additional vantage points, as well as access to the meadow. The Onahu Creek Trail takes you past several small open meadows as it doubles back to Trail Ridge Road. This provides you additional opportunities for spotting moose and elk.
