Green Lake and Ranger Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A leisurely stroll through rain forest along the Carbon River Road leads to a fun hike uphill through old-growth forest and past the gushing waters of Ranger Falls to a small, quaint emerald-green lake in the northwestern region of the park.

The hike to Green Lake once attracted many late-spring hikers looking for an easy trek to a secluded lake, because the snow clears early on this trail and the entire trip took less than 4 miles. With the closure of the Carbon River Road, however, Green Lake has become less of a destination, since the total round-trip calculation nears 10 miles. Its traffic may have lessened, but the trail’s charm has not."
