Description

Lichen It is the climbing trail from the southwest trailhead. That also makes it the first half of a Lava Flow Loop. If you feel like settling in to grind the climb, the trail can pass by pretty quickly. It's very smooth and the conditions are great for riding.

Heading back to the Green's Lake TH from where the "Lava Flow" and the "Lichen It" trails meet. Square Top Mountain is in the background.

I've been asked "what is the name of the trail from the Green's Lake TH to Lava Flow?" If signage means anything, it's "New Trail."
