February 22 2017

Originally, I was supposed to make this hike in the evening with a friend, but last minute plans changed and I had a business dinner to go to that night, so we changed it to afternoon. At the trailhead, he called to say that he couldn't make it, so I hurried and did it myself.

From the Rooney Road Trailhead, I hiked up the Green Mountain Trail, to the summit of Green Mountain and made the loop with the Rooney Valley Trail. I didn't bring a map, so the descent took a little longer than I thought. I didn't have time to linger because I had to get back to work.

January 26 2010

I was in Denver for a couple days, so I had time to do a night hike while in the area. SP member Steven Cross joined me for a climb of Green Mountain. We left one car at the west end of the Green Mountain Trail and one car at a small trailhead off Alameda Avenue.

After figuring out which trailhead we were meeting at, we started climbing the mountain just after dark, but the moon was bright enough to hike without a flashlight or headlamp. We climbed to the summit of Green Mountain and saw all the city lights of Denver. After a break at the summit (where Steve took some night photos) we headed SE along the ridge over the top of another summit and then followed the trail down to the Florida Trailhead on the east side of Green Mountain. Since the car was parked on Alameda Avenue, we hiked the Lonesome Trail through the lower slopes of the mountain and found the vehicle. It was a great hike on a clear night. It was cool (in the 20’s), but not bad for January.

November 18 2008

I was stuck in Denver on business for a few days. After classes, I decided to climb Green Mountain since it was the closest peak to downtown Denver and since it was an unusually warm day for November. I arrived at the Roony Road Trailhead about an hour before sunset and hurried to the highest point to watch the sunset. After walking highpoints in both directions, I completed a loop hike and returned by headlamp well after dark.

Hiked and biked on numerous occasions. Not much of a peak by CO standards, but not bad for a winter/early season mountain bike when everything else is still snow covered.

belexesGreen Mountain & Hayden Trails  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 1, 2008


I took the Green Mountain trail from Alameda to the summit, and then took the Green Mtn and Hayden trails back to the trailhead. It was a fairly quick afternoon hike. The weather was outstanding for the first of March: clear and in the lower 70s. It was pretty breezy, but not cold enough for it to be unpleasant. As a result, there were a lot of hikers and bikers up there. It's now March 2, and the weather has gone almost completely to hell: cold and blowing snow. Oh well.

Started at the Rooney road trailhead and headed up the Green Mountain Trail. Returned via an unmarked trail that headed west, then south from the summit. Beautiful sunny, warm January day. Nice views and deer to be seen. 4/50

Have climbed Green Mountain several times on foot and bike. On a clear day you have a great view of the city and the eastern plains. There are several trails which are nice for off-season training or just to get outside for a little while.

Have hiked this several times, some solo, some with the kids I worked with...that was the most rewarding. While I have summited personally, we didn't reach the summit with work but the young kids I hiked with had such confidence and pride in the hike that they accomplished.

I lived in Lakewood when I was younger and loved hiking up there. Probably one of the places that got me interested in hiking. Thanks for putting it up.

I attempted to bike up Green mountain a couple of weeks after moving to Denver from the midwest. It was a bad idea. I ended up walking most of the way up, but the ride down was sweet.

Great views of Mt. Evans and Longs Peak. Was surprised with the number of mountain bikers. If I lived in Denver this would be an after work place for sure.
