Follow this path until the trail’s end where it will converge with the Baseline Trail before confronting an intersection. Here, turn left and you will be diverted beneath the treeline on the Amphitheatre Trail. Now climbing up the northeastern flank of Green Mountain, the terrain will become increasingly steep and challenging. At the next junction, hook onto the Saddle Rock Trail.
Briefly hike along the Saddle Rock Trail before turning left onto the E.M Greenman Trail. This route will guide adventurers all the way up to the summit of Green Mountain. From the peak, revel in the views of the Front Range snow-capped peaks that line the horizon in the west, and the sights of the cityscape in the east.
