“A good run with easy Front Range access. Some steep climbs, rocks and nice views.”— Chris 22841
Shade and trees are sparse and there can be lots of foot and bike traffic especially on the weekends. The parking lots, especially on the east side, can easily fill up on a busy weekend.
Continue left up the service road down the saddle and back up the other side. At the top of the hill, turn off of the service road onto Rooney Valley Trail to reach the summit which is not far away. Enjoy the 360-degree views before continuing west on Rooney Valley Trail to descend. You'll see a hang glider launch point. Another good spot to check out the views.
Continue down the trail and you'll eventually start to traverse the mountain. There is a fork that may be confusing and you'll stay left going toward Green Mountain. There are some nice views of a group of trees on Green Mountain that seem to be missing everywhere else. You'll continue around the mountain past a fenced off area and take a left at an intersection with Green Mountain Trail.
After a steep climb and some more traversing, Green Mountain Trail will pop you out just above the parking area where you started.
