Denver Off The Beaten Path: 47 reviews and 52 photos
Green Mountain is the first mountain to rise from the plains and become the foothills of the Rockies. This mountain is practically in the city of Denver which makes it a popular destination for hikers, runners, and mountain bikers. The area is protected from devolpment but the large number of users are leading to erosion issues - so stay on the trails. After the 2.7 mile trail takes you to the top you have a commanding view over Denver and a front row seat to the Rockies. To get there take 6th ave west from Interstate 25, take the Kipling street exit and head south on Kipling. From Kipling take a right onto Alameda and you are now heading west again. Alameda takes a soft left around Green Mountain. You will not have much warning that the parking area is coming up but a sign does exist. It will be on your right. Remember to remove all valuables from sight inside of your car.
