Green Mountain Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Accessing some spectacular views from the Santa Catalina Range’s east side, the Green Mountain Trail makes for a nice day hike."

"Cool ponderosa pines, chaparral-oak woodlands, and a flowing spring at trail’s end—this path through the visually stunning Santa Catalina Mountains is a varied and sometimes challenging romp for two- and fourlegged hikers alike."

"A day hike from San Pedro Vista to General Hitchcock Campground. A mixed forest of white firs, Douglas firs, ponderosa pines, and evergreen oaks provide shady walking. Gaps in the canopy allow a sweeping vista of the Galiuro Mountains on the far side of a broad desert basin.

As the trail passes a fingerlike projection of bedrock, an unmarked spur path climbs to the west on its way to the summit of Green Mountain. This steep track climbs steeply to rock outcrops that provide fine views of the surrounding country."
