The Little Green trail starts at the Panthertown Valley trail where it crosses Greenland Creek, near the Cold Mountain entrance to the valley. It starts on a level course along the creek, where there are some bridge structures to carry you over some muddy seeps. It is a short distance the right side of Schoolhouse Falls, one of the most popular places in Panthertown. This is where most people stop, but the trail veers right and twists up the slopes of Little Green Mountain. After a 600' climb through a mixed hardwood forest, you'll arrive at the top of Little Green Mountain, where there are some spectacular views and great early season blueberry picking. The trail then swings south, and joins with the Mac's Gap trail, making some good loop options available.

    Jordan M. said: Andrea - good thinking to turn around. Coming darkness and a slight trip-up in locating the trail can be all it takes to turn a fun hike into a misadventure. I agree that this one needs some additional signage, but I was hoping it'd been improved since the last time I hiked it a couple of years ago. Guess not :)

    Andrea Clark said: I got to the top with my husband and started to follow the trail back to finish up the loop and we got a little lost and couldn't find the trail... The sun started to go down and we only had a small day pack with us and we started to panic a little bit... We had to turn around and go back the way we came because there was no way we were going to be able to find the trail in the dark if we continued trying to follow the trail around.

    James Plank said: The schoolhouse falls and the view from the top are excellent and highly recommended. Once you're on the rock face, finding the trail is difficult, and I ended up bushwhacking a bit to find the trail before it spilled back toward Mac's Gap. The couple I met on the rock face were coming from Mac's Gap and had an equally hard time finding the trail coming the opposite directions. The arrows on the rocks are helpful, but finding the trail once you leave the rock face is a challenge, and could use a sign or too....
