Overview

The Maverick Spring Trail #704 is an interesting side trip off the Green Mountain Trail. This short trail descends to the Maverick Spring Tank – which often has water – and then fades… A nearby drainage – often with a trickle of water – is a nice distraction before heading back to the Green Mountain Trail.
