The Green Bear trail connects Green Mountain West Ridge
to Bear Canyon Trail
. This allows you to do some nice shuttled hikes, such as from Chautauqua to any South Boulder trailhead via Green Mountain.
When going from Green Mountain toward Bear Canyon Trail
, the trail is consistently downhill. In either direction, it meanders through some nice switchbacks behind the Green/Bear ridgeline and feels less traveled than many of the other Open Space trails in Boulder.
