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 my Daily Grind. I can ride to it from my house. Been riding it over 25 years now. Wonderful training loop. An intermediate rider will complete in about an hour with 45 minutes in training zone. It's a Dirt/Rock trail. It would be an easy trail if it weren't for the loose rollers all over the trail. That makes for some technical staring to stay on the hard. Clockways has a LONG HARD 15% climb. Counter-Clockways has that same thing as a decent, so, I like Counter from the Alameda Pkw lot. There is a steep climb out of that lot and a gradual one. I like the gradual one that heads off slightly left 100 feet from the trailhead. Max pitch on the way up (counterclockwise) is 15% for about 100M. Watch out for the 12% 200M grade around turn 3. Again, it wouldn't be that hard, if it weren't for the fact that there is lot's of loose rollers. Get caught in those while cranking and you're going to either hammer it out or jump off.

Review: Our backyard trail. Access from Alameda across from the dog park at Solterra. Travel West toward 470 and North to climb. It's open, wide and deceivingly long climb to the top is rewarded with tight, occasionally steep descents and forever Denver views. Nothing technical, lots of friendly people; hikers, dog walkers, runners and mtb'ers all living in harmony on this well covered, local favorite.

Review: No trees, ride early or late. Very hot at noon. Nice trail otherwise.

Review: Still pretty nooby, so this was a nice warm up trail super close to where I live (SE Golden). Biked here from my house, pretty good way to get used to the altitude. Decent amount of weekday joggers and riders, but not too bad.

Review: I live around the corner from a trail head for GM. As far as a local, out your back door place to ride, its pretty fun. The climbing is pretty steep and will get you into shape, which is good for when you actually drive somewhere to ride. I personally would not go out of my way to ride here unless it is wet in other places.

Review: This is a great flowing, non-technical ride. May be rough when summer is in full swing as there is little cover, just keep fluids on you and bring the sunblock. It's definitely a beginner trail with some good climbs, but a lot of fun.

Review: Being a flat-lander I found this trail-system to be a good change from what I was used to, long steady climbs, circle the peak, then a long fast descent. The views of Denver and the surrounding area make the ride to the top more than worth it. I'll definitely be back in the future and connect some of the adjacent trails as well.

Review: A nice change of pace in town to get a quick fix. But fairly boring (for me).

Review: System of easy to moderate trails within the Denver metro area. Great place to get your climbing legs for the rest of the state.

Review: Fun trail with a little bit of technical stuff here and there to develop skills for those of us who are still learning. The "Jeep Road" on the NW side, kicks up to 24% grade at one point and is a butt kicker if you are not in good shape. I was not the only one getting off my bike going up. In fact, all but one person I saw did. Biggest issue is that if you ride it on weekends it's really crowded with hikers etc.
