Green Mountain, located about 10 miles northwest of Deckers, was the site of a road closure and restoration of an illegal motorized mud-bogging area conducted by Wild Connections and affiliated groups in the summer of 2011.
Come see how the unroaded area is re-vegetating, being reclaimed by nature!
This will be a moderate six-mile off-trail hike with about 700 feet elevation gain. Bring lunch, water, raingear, clothing suitable for weather conditions, and footgear suitable for off-trail hiking. A carpool from Colorado Springs will be arranged.
This trip is sponsored by Wild Connections, Pikes Peak Group Sierra Club, and Central Colorado Wilderness Coalition.
