This loop can be run either clockwise or counterclockwise; the clockwise direction is described here. From the parking lot, begin by following the Green Mountain Trail west as it rolls along the southern edge of Green Mountain. After a short bit, the trail crosses the Hayden Trail (mile 0.4) as it continues to roll west through open grassland, providing exceptional views of the Dakota Hogback extending north-south along the foothills.
