|A great day hike, take the kids and get some excersice. The view of the continental divide and the city of Boulder below is more than worth the effort required. OH pack a lunch too, the top is a perfect picnic spot.|

|Beautiful day for a hike in Boulder, with everything covered in fresh powder. Did this with Brock (bakcast), visiting from Montana for the holidays. |
Started from NCAR about 11.45 or so, summited 14.26, & got back @ 16.42.
We saw a fair number of people down below, but once we got into the canyon, we were all by ourselves. While I might have summited Green Mtn with my mom awhile back (we went up the canyon to the 'T,' but I think we went L at the time), I think this was the first time I summited this particular peak. Snow did a good job of concealing ice underneath, & I landed on my ass a number of times! Couldn't see anything from the summit, as we were basically in the middle of a cloud.
Great dayhike & good chance to get to know another cool SP member.
Jan. 6, '16: Hiked down the Long Canyon Trail to the Ranger Trail to the summit. Got there at gloaming, shortly after the sun had set. Took the W ridge trail down. Icy, but great to do it with my pops, a nice hike, & great views!
Jan. 12, '16: 3rd of my 3-peak traverse (Tri-Tip Challenge). Summited 17.13, later than I'd hoped, ha ha. Oh well. Worked out. Notable gusts at summit (50ish mph?)!! Views of lights in the dark down via Saddle Rock trail phenomenal. Made it back to the truck (Chautauqua trailhead) at 18.28, 17 minutes before the CRES Boulder chapter meeting at CU :) Fitting end to a great day!

|rolkamon||Date Climbed: May 2001|
|We were visiting some friends teaching at CU and this trip was an epiphany. We just headed out of our appt near campus and walked up Green Mtn, in my sneakers. Since this hike my life changed. After 10 years as an urban professional I discovered the outdoors. We climbed this and the flat irons, and went to RMNP, returning to NYC I joined the AMC, started hiking, then climbing, then backpacking, then ice climbing, then mountaineering. Since then the outdoors and climbing have been a central part of my life. What a beutiful place.|

|This is definitely not the recommended route up Green. Starts with a bushwhack through the narrows of Skunk Canyon but then opens up nicely in the interior. Packed snow/ice on the upper trail. Great views.|
Descent via Green-Bear trail.

|I climbed Green Mountain many times. Great views on top of the snow-capped Indian Peaks and Longs Peak. A good trail, which you can also access from Flagstaff Mountain. I love climbing this mountain and next time I am in Colorado, I'm sure I'll take a nice trek out there.|

|Nice sunny winter day. Trail was a bit icy in places. Great views of the divide, Boulder, and the plains.|
Also May 2004, June 2004, September 2004 via various routes. This is such a nice small mountain to hit when you don't have a lot of time or don't feel like driving up into the high country.
