Nice hike very close to Denver. I was pleasantly surprised with the terrain after you cross the freeway and start on the trail. The top offers a tremendous 360 view; clear views back into the mountains and of downtown Denver. There were a lot of mountain bikers and it also seemed to be a great spot to trail run if hiking isn’t your jazz. You’ll be sure to be greeted by the chorus of prairie dogs. Keep an eye out for rattlesnakes as we saw one about a quarter of a mile in. Overall, definitely check it out especially for the view at the top. Over and out.

Beautiful gradual hike uphill till the top (about 2.23 miles). No shade so do early in the morning. We saw elk and ground hogs.

Great climb up to the top of Green Mtn. Instead of coming back down the same path, we looped around the Green mtn trail back down. It was basically a shale covered road and not as scenic. Good hike overall. ~4.5 miles took about 1.75 hours.
