Green Mountain West Ridge Professional Reviews and Guides
"This short but steep trail is good training for those aspiring to climb higher mountains. For others, the view of Boulder and the eastern plains beyond is worth the e?ort. Plus there’s a great view of the Indian Peaks and Rocky Mountain National Park peaks to the west and north. The rumble and whistles of trains traveling above Eldorado Canyon to the south waft through the air. The trail traverses through the Western Mountain Parks Habitat Conservation Area, which requires on-trail travel unless you obtain an o?-trail permit. Staying on-trail helps protect and preserve sensitive or rare plants and animals."
