Green Mountain After Work Hike & 5280 Week Dinner

We'll hike Green Mountain/Lakewood from the Alameda side. The difficulty will depend on the conditions, but expect about 3-4 miles with roughly 850' of elevation. This hike has great views of Denver and the city lights at night. This entire hike will be after sunset—bring a headlamp. This time of year, you may need traction devices such as Micro Spikes or IceTrekkers.

After the hike, we'll go to the upscale Simms Steakhouse for a 5280 Week dinner (a three course dinner for $26.40/person or $52.80/couple, not including drinks/tax/gratuity).

Please note the details about bringing appropriate gear and in case of bad weather in this Meetup Group's Welcome description. The weather is mercurial this time of year, so on the day of the hike if the weather is questionable be sure to check the website or call or email the leader (cell# will be sent to those who've RSVP'd) to confirm the hike is on. 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 Florida Lot of Green Mountain/William Frederick Hayden Park, on the west side of W. Alameda Pkwy (across from W. Florida Dr.), about 1/4 mile north of the Alameda/Jewell intersection in Lakewood (do not go to the Utah Lot which is a little south of the Florida Lot). Click here for a Google map with directions.

    Really nice clear evening. Stars were spectacular with the crescent moon. A little on the muddy side but a good hike. Simms waitstaff was very accomodating, good 5280 experience.

    Great selection for dinner after the hike. I am amazed you were able to pull that off given it is Denver Restaurant week. Thanks for putting it all together.

    Outstanding night! Great hike--hardly any wind. Fun time and really great food at Simms afterward.
