The Green Tunnel

After The Whites, the terrain changes dramatically. Instead of constantly climbing above the tree line, the trail is in a "green tunnel". Typical views occur where there is a rock outcropping or ledge. Occasionally the trees will have been trimmed and cut back to allow a nice view. Elevations now often range from 1,000 to 2,000 feet. Earlier, they were from 3,000 to 6,000 feet. This is called "The Green Tunnel".
