The Incline Trail

The incline is the worst!!! So hopefully I will do it again soon. This is a trail that you could definitely have a love/hate relationship with. For me, it kicks my butt SO hard, but when you get to the top it's a feeling that you won't forget anytime soon. It's a feeling that you can't get doing many other typical "trails" even some 14ers. Really cool and fun and should be missed. Plus running down the back side trail is SUPER fun!!!

Easy hike with lots to look at. I really enjoy all of the boulders and really interesting rock formations. Several trails available for a slight range of fitness levels. Mostly easy stuff, but there are a few trails that are pretty steep. They also allow free climbing anywhere in the park so that's nice!

Not a bit of snow, and the weather was perfect! Warm and sunny on the way up ,and cooler with storm clouds rolling in for the hike down. The wild flowers are just beginning to bloom too. Will definitely be going back soon.

Green Mountain Trail

My second visit to Green Mountain in early April was on a warm dry day. I parked on Rooney Rd and crossed C470 then followed the Green Mountain Trail to the right. The initial 4 miles were fun, undulating, single track with some good technical elements. The next mile or so was a punishing climb on a variety of surfaces which really tested my stamina. Eventually I crossed the summit loop and reached a comms station near the top, which was the intersection of a couple of trails. I decided to follow the Green Mountain Trail which was outrageously quick for the next 1.25 miles until it eventually merged with the initial trail I took near to an parking lot off of West Almedia. The last 3 miles were a reverse of the fun undulating single track. You must be prepared to climb on this route (1950 ft) the whole ride being approx 10 miles.

We took the cheater route by driving up to the trailhead on Flagstaff Road. From there, we took Ranger trail to EM Greenman to the summit. It was a relatively easy hike with only a few steep areas. The trail in April was also muddy in some places and snowy towards the summit. This trail offers unbeatable views of Boulder and pretty views of RMNP in the distance. Well worth the effort. We also had a fun encounter with a territorial pheasant and made friends with some chipmunks. Recommended.

Great workout. Great views. paying $5 to park was an aggrivation. No water readily available at such a strenuous walk was surprising. for those reasons I give it 4 stars.

I ride the trail from the trailhead to the monument fire center at least once per week. Great for a quick singletrack ride on the trail along mt Herman rd.

Beautiful views. Steep ride up to the reservoirs, but the ride down was fast.

After hiking Maxwell Falls trail, Three Sisters was a nice change of pace. Beautiful views, great terrain & awesome boulders. Overall, nice hike & not too far from Denver.
