Green Mountain is an old ski hill in the Nanaimo Lakes area betwen Second and Fourth Lake. It's roughly 1465 metres tall but most of that is gained with a drive up the logging roads. The hike up is best in the late spring when the wildflowers are blooming and the snow is gone. Be careful with animals as there are marmots and often elk in the area.
Note: The area around Green Mountain is owned by TimberWest and the Nanaimo Lakes gates are often locked.
Directions to Trailhead
Follow the Nanaimo Lakes Main logging road to K-15. Follow K-15 until you can't drive any more then hike along the road and up the meadow.
