Trail Description
About this trail
This park has three parking areas. The loop is the same from all. From any trailhead, begin a clockwise loop in the park. On the south-east sides of the park, this loop maintains fairly constant elevation as it winds around the base of Green mountain. On the north west side of the mountain, a jeep road will take you to the top. On top, follow the jeep road past the radio towers, and back onto singletrack on the south east leg of the loop. Descend this singletrack, and finish the loop back to your car.

Review: This is always busy! even when I was midweek on a windy day, the parking lot was full. I would recommend going up the big hill right from the parking lot and get on top as soon as you can. This way is the funnest because you get a longer downhill. The downhill was a fun cruiser where you could really get some speed up. Nothing technical. A great afterwork ride or a family/wife ride.

Review: Initial dirt road climb felt long to this out of shape dude. After the first climb it has some fun switch backs and more rolling sections.

Review: Nice trail network that is easy to get to. The southwest side offers some rolling double track that is great for the novice with some short rocky sections. More advanced riders can work their way to higher elevation, choosing from a number of climbs, from smooth jeep road to rockier single/double track. No shade to speak of though.

Review: Got on the trail at 6:00 and rode the loop to the top and was done by 8:30. For an inexperienced rider such as myself, these rolling hills provided a fun ride that did not tire me out.

Review: Green Mountain is a decent trail configuration. On the West and Northwest side of the mountain is the best singletrack. But its a small little mountain worth exploring if you live in the Front Range. There Are alot of fun smooth single track all over. Although they are not very long but worth day of exploring the whole place.

Review: Granted there are better trails along the front range, but if you are looking to test your legs climbing, this is a great trail for that. The climb up the jeep road is a grind. There are plenty of off shoots that you can take that will give you some variety. Overall a good trail with good views at the top.

Review: I don't even know why this trail is listed in here. If you don't live in one of the surrounding neighborhoods and can ride from your house, don't bother coming here. There are much better rides around. That being said, I'm glad I have this trail next to my house. It is a great training ride with lots of different loops to keep it interesting. You can do a quick 45 minute ride or hook up Dakota Ridge and Mathew Winters for long rides. Fun on a single speed.

Review: All I can say, it's a good training ride. I would prefer fast and flowwy trails, but there are not many of those on the front range. It's clear most of the winter, so when other trails are closed, it's usually available. A lot of climbing for a little bit of downhill. Again, great for training, but so far it's my least favorite trail in the Denver area.

Review: Great training ride. Not much variation in the type of terrain. Hard pack mostly, rocky in parts with some rock gardens. Depending on the trail there are some good flowing sections or just straight up (seems to be a trend on the front range). I started at the Rooney parking lot and rode essentially clockwise, taking the Rooney Valley trail (keeping left at forks). This is ALL up from this direction, gain is about 1200 ft. Then I took the main road along the top, down Hayden, and around Green Mtn. trail. Mostly single track other than the road. I had fun.
