Ascent Trip ReportThere is a fire lookout on the summit of Green Mtn and it is a short drive off the road to Elk Mtn. I approached from Grangeville, followed Hwy 14 to near Elk City, then turned on FR 222 which I followed to the Red River Ranger Station. This is a long drive and it is still a longer drive to get to the peak. Just past the ranger station I turned left onto the Magruder Corridor FR 468 that goes all the way to Darby, MT. Follow the Magruder Corridor for about 18 miles to FR 285 where I turned left. The sign says it is another 18 miles to Elk Mtn which was my destination after Green Mtn. After about 4.5 miles on FR 285, I turned left on the spur road that goes up to the Green Mtn Fire Lookout. Great views from the fire lookout.
