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."
--Scott S. Warren, 100 Classic Hikes Arizona (The Mountaineers Books).
"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."
--Renee Guillory, Best Hikes with Dogs: Arizona (The Mountaineers Books).
"A day hike from San Pedro Vista to General Hitchcock Campground, 3.7 miles one way.
This trail offers a pleasant day hike that loops away from the Catalina Highway and then returns to it at a much lower point. It traverses secluded country with frequent views to the east. A large number of spur trails depart on an eastward heading, offering the possibility of side trips or longer loops incorporating a portion of the Brush Corrals Trail. The habitat here is predominantly mixed pine-oak woodland, with conifers in the cooler sites and oaks prevailing on drier slopes."
--Erik Molvar, Hiking Arizona's Cactus Country-Third Edition (Falcon Guides).
