GREEN SPRINGS IS RATED “EASY-PEASY”. We cover 4.6 miles with little elevation gain.
While one of the easiest hikes Rushmore offers, beautiful views of Mount Ashland abound. It’s a short and scenic hike with almost no elevation gain. In the spring and early summer the trail is bordered with wildflowers and edible miner’s lettuce. Offering great views and opportunities for wildlife viewing.
The viewpoint, located about 1.2 miles from the start, is often a great spot to see deer and birds of prey. It is also the only part of the hike where you will be able to see the last remaining old-growth trees in the area, some of which show scars from the wildfires that have affected the area. The south-facing section of the trail takes us through a prairie (seen in our Event Picture) with an open view of the valley before heading back through the forest.
Directions from Luna: Head out hwy 66 for 15 miles. A large parking lot turn off is on the left (with Hobart to the right). Park off 66 between mile post 15-16.
