Location

William Frederick Hayden Park on Green Mountain is the second largest park in Lakewood. The park features a challenging network of multi-use trails. The summit, at 6,800 feet, offers unique and stunning views of the Denver metropolitan area to the east, as well as high mountain peaks to the west. 

 

We will meet at 3:30 pm, at the Hayden Trailhead on W. Alameda Drive, less than half a mile south of Green Mountain Drive.  The trailhead parking lot is on the west side of W. Alameda Dr.

Details

The moonrise in Denver on Feb. 17th is just a couple days before the full moon.  It's scheduled to rise at 3:30 p.m.  We will hike the Hayden and Green Mountain trail loop, 3.2 miles as the moon comes up in the sky.  Stopping at the highest point to look over the city of Denver.  Even if the sky is cloudy we will still do this hike.



Please bring your headlamps, micro spikes, 10 essentials and appropriate clothing.



There will be an option to stop at the Westrail Tap and Grill at 195 S.Union Blvd, Lakewood, Co  80228 after the hike.
