Details

Route description: Green Lake is a tarn at end of Glacier Gorge and at the base of Pagoda Mountain and Longs Peak.  From Glacier Gorge parking lot in RMNP, we will travel about 5 miles to Black Lake and then continue another mile or so to Green Lake.  The trail will initially be packed snow, but please be ready for deep snowshoeing around Black Lake.  


 


If we are feeling spry and conditions permit, we could add on a 2,000 foot Class 2+ rocky couloir and boulder-strewn ridge to the top of Pagoda. This would entail moderate exposure at times.


 


Special gear: hiking or mountaineering boots, snowshoes, microspikes, gloves for scrambling, helmet, mountaineering axe
