Mylius to Shavers Mountain Trail Loop

Mylius to Shavers Mountain Trail Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This loop meanders along the beautiful Otter Creek before making a big climb to the summit of Green Mountain. After the summit, the trail descends gradually down Shaver Mountain back to the junction with the Mylius Trail. Hikes from the stream valley to the ridge-tops of Otter Creek Wilderness display ever changing ecosystems as the elevation changes.

Birch and cherry hardwood forests dominate the creek valley and the slopes, while red spruce and the imported Norway spruce occupy the higher elevations. Otter Creek Wilderness has 40 miles of trails on its 20,000 acres. Its popularity makes it especially busy on summer weekends."
