Starting from the southwest side of Crested Butte, the Green Lake Trail (#566) climbs a jeep trail and then game trail over the five miles to Green Lake. From the lake, return the same way, or head back via the Wildcat Trail. An adventurous hiking loop would be to continue south on the GLT to the Baxter Gulch Trail; either way on the BGT eventually leads to town.
Overall, Green Lake Trail is the 10th most popular hiking trail of all 72 hikes in Colorado. Several of the better hiking trails are nearby Green Lake Trail including Deer Creek, Snodgrass Trail, Lower Loop Trail System, East / West Maroon Trail Loop, Yule Pass Trail, Copper Lake Trail and Oh Be Joyful - Peeler Lakes.
