Trailhead: Green Mountain
Distance: 11.2 mi
Elevation Change: 2,420'
There is another route, but this is the one I took.
Hike up the Green Mountain trail to the junction with the Tonahutu Creek Trail. Head north. The trail goes around Big Meadow then through the burn scar from 2013. After more than seven miles, the trail climbs to treeline. At about 11,400' elevation, leave the trail and countour southwest. Pass two unnamed ponds and continue across alternating talus and grassy fields to Murphy Lake.
