After walking on a short section of gravel road, the trail climbs at a moderate rate with switchbacks in a few areas.

The aspens make this trail especially beautiful in the fall. Early summer hiking in the trail is muddy and some snow may be found in spots near Green Lake. From mid-June to mid-August the mosquitoes are quite bothersome and repellent is highly suggested, Just short of Green Lake, a junction sign points the way to West Lake and Green Lake.
