The Kitsap Peninsula has numerous hiking options, but there is only one Green Mountain, a prominent high point in the middle of a mostly flat and low-lying landscape. Luckily, the second-highest peak in the region provides plenty of good reasons to visit, other than just its exclusivity, including an extensive network of trails and great summit views.

A beautiful area for bird watching! The trail is flat and popular with runners. There is a nice interpretive center at the entrance to the trail, and the plants around that area are identified with little placards that say their latin names and English names.

Wonderful 2.5 mile trek. Easy access and clear trails. Some boardwalks over a few wetlands were icy in the early a.m. but melted as the day warmed. Trekked with a 4 year old and the sights were never boreing for him.

Beautiful, easy stroll on well maintained trail...boardwalk, asphalt and crushed rock. Lots of birds along estuaries. View of Hood Canal in the distance and Olympic Mtns. Small, well maintained Natural History museum at trail head. Good for all ages including stollers. Lots of early morning joggers out for exercise.
