Green Mountain Trail #541
The trailhead is a particularly scenic location atop Green Mountain with views into Montana and Oregon. From the sunny meadow crowning Green Mountain, the trail begins a steep, 3-mile, 1,600-foot drop into Meadow Creek through stands of lodgepole pine. Meadow Creek is aptly named, as the trail meanders through grassy cleanings along the stream. Trail #541 takes a moderate gradient climbing out of the meadow and levels to a crossing of Butter Creek. From this drainage, the trail climbs to a ridge top and a junction with Divide Trail #505. This ridge marks the divide between the Meadow Creek and Red River drainages. From here the trail descends gradually for 2.75 miles, crosses the creek numerous times, and ends on Butter Creek Road #1166.
