This was a quick hike after work to summit a new peak that I have driven by hundreds of times.  Green Mountain sits above Lakewood, Colorado, and has an extensive trail system used by bikers, trail runners, and hikers.  Our dogs were home alone, so it was a good option for me on this particular evening.  It took me about 30 minutes to reach the top and about 20 minutes to descend.
