Great walk up to the top. Be careful if you come with your dog that you keep them on the path. When it warms up there are rattlesnakes on and off the path.

Have been hiking at Green Mountain Park for dozens of years. It is consistently one of the hiking areas that I recommend for its Goldilocks' type hiking (i.e., not too easy, not too hard) and vistas of the Denver metro area. It has a longer...More
