Spring Creek-Green Mountain
Head up the trail as it wonders through the meadows, marshlands, and forests of the Spring Creek valley. The initial going is scenic forest ecosystems, filled with birds and beasts-including clouds of mosquitoes if you come too early in the year (i.e., July). After about 1.8 miles of nearly flat strolling along the valley bottom, turn right onto the Green Mountain Trail and begin your workout. This trail winds moderately upward, following the southeast spine of the mountain. But don't fret too much about the climb-the pitch is pretty gentle. In the 2.3 miles to the summit (from the trail junction in the valley bottom), you'll gain a modest 1100 vertical feet. There are wonderful views awaiting you at the top, with mighty Mount Adams dominating the scene.
From Randle, drive approximately 1 mile south on Forest Road 25 and turn left (east) onto FR 23. Continue to the junction with FR 21. Turn left onto FR 21, drive to the Adams Fork Campground, and then turn left (south) onto FR 56. Cross the Cispus River and veer left, continuing 3.2 miles to FR 5603. Turn right and drive 2.8 miles to Spur Road 5603-042. Turn right onto the spur road and follow it about a half mile to the road's end and the trailhead.
