Green Mountain Recreational Open Space
Located only 10 minutes west of Denver, Green Mountain is a haven for mountain bikers, runners and other outdoor enthusiasts. The wide array of single-track trails, ranging from packed dirt to loose rock and boulders, encourages beginners, but offer enough challenge for even the most experienced mountain bikers. The 1.5-mile steep climb up the west side fire road is certainly a test of will and lungpower. The less adventurous can opt for more scenic and leisurely ways to the hilltop and the short climb is worth the hike for the incredible panoramic views of the city.

A great place for fresh air

If you are stuck in Lakewood for some reason (for me it is work-related) Green Mountain is the one respite to the otherwise cookie cutter city called Lakewood. Great trail system and views from the top.
I love Green Mountain. It is a pretty simple mountain for families, a great place for picnics (on top), and the views of the Denver skyline are the best. It's perfect for mountain biking, walking the dog, or just getting some perspective on life. If you're out there for some cardio, there are some easy trails, and some challenging ones as well.
