NEW HIKERS ONLY: Green Mountain After Work Hike and Pizza

THIS HIKE IS ONLY FOR MEMBERS WHO HAVE NOT HIKED WITH THIS MEETUP BEFORE.  We'll hike up Green Mountain from the Rooney Road trailhead doing a loop that goes around the northwest side of Green Mountain/Lakewood. The route has great views of Golden and Denver West. We'll watch the sunset (7pm) during the hike--bring a headlamp or a flashlight. The hike is about 4 miles with 820' of elevation gain. After the hike those interested will go to Frontroom Pizza for dinner/drinks.

If you have attended an after work hike with this Meetup before, do not sign up for this hike.  (Trail work days do not disqualify you.)  To check your attendance history, go to the website, at the upper left click Members-->My Profile, and scroll down to the bottom left and click on "View attendance history". My hikes fill up quickly, so this will give new members a chance to attend a hike.

Please note the details about bringing appropriate gear and in case of bad weather in this Meetup Group's Welcome description. It gets cooler after sunset, so bring appropriate clothing. Dogs are welcome on this hike, but they must be on a leash and you must pick up after them. If you join this hike, you are agreeing to this waiver.

Directions: We're meeting at the Rooney Road trailhead on the west side of Green Mountain (don't go to the trailheads on the east side on Alameda Pkwy). Click here for a Google map with directions. From C470 on the west side of Denver, exit Alameda Pkwy. At the exit, turn left, go west over C470, go past the Dinosaur Ridge sign on the right, and then continue on the road where it turns right/north into Rooney Road. After you turn north, you can see the parking lot for the trailhead on the right about a mile up the road. Driving north on Rooney Road, you’ll pass a yellow sign for hikers crossing the road, and then a second one—the parking lot is on the right (east side) just after the second sign, and is south of several large electrical towers.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, even bringing up the rear. The hikers were warm, friendly & welcoming. Ed was an awesome host & trip leader! I would absolutely recommend this group to others. The combination of an outdoor activity & the opportunity to socialize over dinner & refreshments is a winning pairing in my book. I hope I am fortunate enough to participate in future hiking opportunities in this venue.

    Ed, I know your a popular guy! I can't believe the "New Members Only" filled up quickly and has a long waiting list!

    Can you clone a couple more of you, then everyone can enjoy getting on your hikes!!

    You should take the "new comers" on a wild goose chase!! Just kidding!

    You guys will enjoy Ed, his hikes, and the people that attend his hikes!! Have fun!
