Roadtrip to the Rockies: Green Mountain Trail

Another day of the long holiday weekend equals another hike!  Danelle was game to hike with me on Sunday too, and we decided on Green Mountain Trail in Pike National Forest.

Strangely, we’ve hiked all over this area, including miles of the Colorado Trail, and didn’t know it was here.  We were the first to arrive in the dirt parking lot off Forest Road 550 at 8:30 am.  The trailhead parking is near Buffalo Creek Campground and has pit toilets.

Being July 4th weekend, the area was loaded with campers, so we weren’t sure how busy the normally lightly trafficked trail would be. 

GO HIKING …
