Ran this loop counterclockwise to hit the elevation early on. About 1/2 of the trail is wide and the other half narrow. Not very difficult to allow bikes to pass. You can hear and see cars on the road almost the entire trail.

Good trail, go early if you want to avoid the sun! Quite a few people and mountain bikers out and about, but parking lot wasn’t full getting there at 8AM, or leaving at 10:30AM

Nice trail for running. Steep incline for about 1 mile that tests. Decent amount of hiking/biking traffic.

Solid 6 mile loop with good views. Otherwise not remarkable because the entire back half is pretty narrow and rocky and it’s difficult to get out of the way of bikes.

Ran this trail clockwise exactly, 6.54 miles. On a drizzly weekday afternoon, there was hardly any traffic. Perfect trail conditions - mud has all dried and hardened. Some ruts from mountain bikes when it was muddy, but nothing too crazy.

Good trail, however there are a LOT of mountain bikers and sometimes it can be hard to find a place to step out of their way. Minimal shade, but we enjoyed seeing all the prairie dogs during one of the lower parts of the trail!

Holy smoly. We did the green mountain trail and it kicked my butt to be honest. 7.3 miles completed! We walked and ran at the down hill parts. It is very hilly which makes a great workout! We started and ended at the Florida parking. (Follow the green dotted line on the map and definitely get a map! ha) beautiful view of red rocks and lakes. I also didn’t think it was as muddy as people say, And if so there’s a bunch of ways to walk around it. Definitely will come back and recommend going! Have fun!

Not a bad trail for how close it is to the Metro Area, but I won't be going back until the mud dries. We were walking through thick mud for about 90% of the trail. We somehow missed a turn and my tracker says the full loop was 7 miles. Not too strenuous, but so so muddy.

Great little workout. Lots of bikes too and trail is narrow in places so a little challenging sometimes to give way but for being so close to the city really pretty views and rolling hills.

My friend lost a diamond pendant while hiking on this trail on 4/1. If you find it, please e-mail brenkilgore25@yahoo.com

A little muddy still but very manageable! Great views for how close it is to the city

Always a pleasant hike. Fair amount of snow and some ice but no issue with good hiking shoes. Hardly anyone on the trial. Started just before sunrise

We did the trail counter-clockwise. The trail immediately starts with the incline and is in full sun. Once we made it to the top, the wind picked up and I was glad I had my windbreaker on me. Great views of the city and the mountains. We made our way around the loop with its ups and downs back to the parking. Tons of prairie dogs were running around. It took us just over 2 hours.
