A bit of work, but good slightly technical riding.

Overview

Features: -none-

Description

One of the higher trails on Mt. Lemmon, Green Mountain begins with a short uphill into good, technical singletrack. There is always a possibility that you'll encounter large trees that have fallen across the trail you may have to climb over.

About halfway along the trail there's a longer uphill section, but not as steep, followed by a good amount of fun downhill along the hiking path with stairs to drop down. Watch for hikers along here and remember to yield.

There are a couple forks in the trail so be careful to follow the correct route unless you want to adventure. The ride ends at the General Hitchcock Picnic Area and easily links up with Bug Springs just down the road.

We found the description quite misleading; this trail has long, sustained technical sections including steep switchbacks and rocky drops. Would not recommend for most riders. Mar 30, 2018

The trail is clearly stated to be double black diamond in difficulty. It's not actually that difficult, but if you're not capable of riding at that level comfortably or having fun trying, then I agree the trail isn't a good option. That being said, it's probably the most fun semi-technical downhill trail in the Tucson area. Mar 30, 2018
Double Black is definitely deserved. Honestly, until the saddle by Guthrie Mountain (about halfway down the trail) it totally sucks. This is coming from a rider who was comfortable and had fun on Kellog and Incinerator Ridge. Apr 23, 2018
