Another extremely accessible mountain playground, William F. Hayden Green Mountain Park is popular with trail runners and mountain bikers alike. Green Mountain boasts an 800-foot ascent and is conveniently nestled between highways 6, 470 and I-70 in Lakewood. The rocky terrain gives city dwellers the opportunity to get their shoes dirty. There are lots of trails on Green Mountain so you can create a variety of different runs and even avoid the big climb altogether if you prefer.. but where’s the fun in that? Be prepared for cyclists and hot weather in the summertime!
