Green Mountain Connector Professional Reviews and Guides

"Green Mountain Trail used to be combined with Stanley Gap Trail to make up the Rich Mountain Trail, legendary for its toughness and roughness. The USDA Forest Service recognizes them as two separate trails. By tackling them separately, they are manageable for more riders, which is not to say that Green Mountain is easy.

The climb back up from the lake is pretty tough, but the scenery along the way will reward you and distract you from any discomfort you may be experiencing. The initial climb from the parking lot on the upper trail is a toughie as well, but is mercifully over within 0.8 mile. The run down to the lake is a blast, and will keep your pulse up even though you aren’t pedaling much. Take a refreshing dip in the lake, or stop and eat lunch, then tackle the return climb. It’s not too tough from this direction, and this out-and-back, down-and-up makes a great way to spend the day. Tread: 7.7 miles on singletrack."

"The Green Mountain Trail actually offers several hike options, including a loop from Deep Gap, a shuttle hike to Blue Ridge Lake, and a shuttle hike connecting with the Long Branch Loop Trail. This route, however, describes a loop hike from Deep Gap at Aska Road. There are excellent views of the surrounding mountains in this area (but only during the winter months)."
