Just north of Black Butte, Green Ridge Tr25 is an OAB ridgeline ride, overlooking the Metolius River.
Expect to share the trail with hikers from the Metolius River area campgrounds.
Plenty of trailhead options, depending on how much of the (moderate) ridgeline ascent is desired.
There are several spurs from FR1130, which can eliminate all of the climbing. But then there would be no downhill, either..
The trail constantly crosses doubletrack spur roads, with too many to mention.
Try not to get lured onto the many doubletrack spur roads. A GPS is suggested.
The area map shows the rugged wilderness hiking trails over to the Pacific Crest Trail, as well as the entire northern section of Metolius Windigo Tr99.
Near the Hoodoo Ski Area, the Ray Benson SnoPark serves as the upper TH for a XC Ski terrain network, with Blue Lake or the SR20 Corbett SnoPark as the lower TH. Santiam SnoPark is also alongside SR22 for an easy access XC Ski TH.
