Green Mountain lives up to its name in that it is green throughout the year which is stark contrast to the lower levels of the island which can be likened to a lava desert. Being the highest point on the island it is often in cloud, this was recognised by the Victorian military who were garrisoned on the island who built water catchment areas to harvest the dew. These water catchment areas are no longer in use, all water for the island now being supplied by the desalination plant at English Bay.
The upper slopes are heavily planted with trees and shrubs on the advice of Charles Darwin after his visit in the early 19th Century, as such there are no views from the summit so make the most of those available as you ascend.
