Green Mountain, Boulder, Co

We took the Green Mountain West Trail straight to the summit instead of doing the loop or checking out the cliffs, but we’ll be saving those for next time. The highlight of this hike for me was the little rock tower on the summit with a metal slab with peaks to help you identify the peaks in the distance. Very cool!

I just love seeing trees everywhere.
Don’t forget to sign the register when you reach the summit! This one was easy to find, the white pvc pipe in the rock tower above.

Gorgeous, green view from the summit. It took us about 2.2 miles to reach this point and then another 2.2 miles back to the car. The summit was 8,150 ft, so another 8er to the list. Many, many more to go!
