Appropriately if not creatively named, Green Mountain boasts hundreds of acres of emerald slopes. But look closer: within all of that green is a dazzling display of wildflowers of all colors. However, it’s hard to focus on Green Mountain’s brilliant ?oral arrangements when its jaw-dropping scenic sideshow, dominated by gargantuan snow cone Glacier Peak, vies for attention. Besides having one of the ?nest views in the North Cascades, Green boasts a historic ?re lookout too. The hike to this beloved lookout used to start from the Suiattle River valley, but FR 2680’s development made this hike a heck of a lot easier by knocking a couple miles and a couple thousand feet of elevation off of it.

As of the end of July 2007, the road to this hike is still washed out and you can't get to the trailhead.
