This is a challenging and rewarding climb along the well-known trail past Black Lake along the Glacier Gorge Trail system. Green Lake is a shallow, 3.7-acre pond with a setting quite spectacular including close-up views of Glacier Gorge to its shaded cirque below Long's Peak. The hike will be a class B of 11.5 miles round trip with 2,310 elevation gain. We'll hike at a moderate pace. A small parking lot and a long hike necessitate an early departure and a limit of 8 hikers.
