The lower section of Green Lake Trail is made of steep, tight, technical switchbacks. Further up it goes between meadows, past rocks, and through technical rocky bits. Above Green Lake, the trail is steep, narrow, and on talus.

       Rad ride, Im a big fan. We did this as an out and back basically hike a biked / rode up green lake trail and came down. We went up just to the lake and turned around and rallied down. This trails got lots of tricky parts with awkward rock squeezes, tricky rock gardens and tight hairpins with rocks in the middle of them. Posted a video of the trail in the video tab to give you an idea.
