Green Mountain Trail (88) starts on a gentle grade, then becomes more difficult upon entering the Sinclair Creek drainage. From the ridgetop and into the Wigwam drainage, climbing becomes less difficult. Campsites are limited the first 4 miles, but upon entering Bluebird Basin there are numerous places to camp, particularly around Bluebird and Paradise Lakes. The trail leaving the basin makes a short steep climb to a ridge overlooking Bat Lake, and follows the ridgetop to the border.
