Took the long way via Bear Canyon / Green Bear Trails, went out and back for a total of 11.8 miles 2,602ft elevation gain...fun hike
Fantastic trails for lots of running opportunities.
Carried Journey most of the way up, then the girls went down while I ran and bagged the summit and got to a place to look down on Solterra. Ran back down the steeps pretty quick as it was almost completely dark and I had no light.
Fun little hike after training session for work. Easy access from the Federal Center area.
Mountain biked to the top and down
I took a break from the mountains that day down in Denver and went out in the evening to stretch my legs. This hike fit the bill. Seeing Denver in twilight down below was a treat.
This was my 4th time on Green Mountain. I took the same route (more or less) as last time. We had a pretty good snowstorm last week, so the trail was still muddy in spots, and there was a little leftover snow on the north facing slopes and alcoves. It was sunny, a little breezy, cool but not too cold.
Done as a training run many times.
Nice bike ride and views!... a bit muddy.
Beautiful Thanksgiving day in Denver, nice little hike.
Fun hike close to town. Love the new snow. http://www.coloradoascents.blogspot.com/2013/11/green-mountain.html
Very pretty area...
Nice running trails. Watch out for rattlesnakes.
I've been driving past this quick & easy hike for almost 20 years on my way to other ski and climbing trips in the Front Range. Stopped off today on my way home from a day of skiing and finally did it. What a view of the city; didn't realize just how expansive Denver is.
I was supposed to meet some other hikers at the Florida trailhead, but they never showed. So I took the Green Mountain Trail to the summit, then took the Hayden Trail back to the trailhead. The trail was muddy in spot thanks to last Saturday's snowstorm, but it was mostly fine. It was a nice day, sunny and a little windy. Quite a few bikers and hikers up there.
Up twice, once in the summer once on skis in the winter.
Nice area for trail running and easy mountain biking. Been out here many times.
Hiked, Biked, Ran. Great peak for getting some elevation when short on time from the Denver area.
This is a trail run or mountain bike ride with several route options
Daniela and I got back to Green Mountain. Being just 10 minutes away from home it's the best place for us to go for a walk in the afternoon hours.
We had the best sunsets and views of Denver from up there.
