Green Mountain

Suiattle River Road Area

Miles: 8 miles roundtrip 

Elevation: 3,200 feet gained

Parking can be difficult to find despite the long drive up. Starting on an easy grade through the forest for a mile, the trail breaks out onto a meadowy hillside. You will be out in the open for the remainder of the climb. Travel around a hill and reach a view of the summit above with a small lake below. The trail dips down to pass the lake and then climbs steeply to a ridge. Short switchbacks follow this slim ridge to the summit which has a newly rebuilt lookout atop. Views will simple amaze you!

  • Get there: Take Highway 530 through Darrington and over Sauk River on a grated bridge. Just after this bridge, take a right onto Suiattle River Road (11 miles to Highway 20). Starting as a mostly paved road, it soon turns to gravel. After about 19 miles turn left on FS road 2680. Follow it to the trailhead at the road's end six miles up.
