Ascent Trip Report

Windy but pleasant (high 50's) today. This trip was just a quick jaunt for some excercise. Started at Rooney Trailhead on Rooney Road, went up the Green Mountain trail, which is pretty much a road. When you get to the the top of the ridge, there is a short trail that leads to the summit, or you can just stay on the Green Mountain trail and then there is a side trail to the right that goes to the summit. About 30 minutes up, 15 minutes down. Nice view of metro area and Golden Foothills from the top.
