Hiking the Greenhorns
Nowhere else among Colorado's wilderness areas does one find the juxtaposition of mountains
and plains as in Greenhorn Mountain, where the Rockies meet up abruptly with the Great North
Part of the greater Laramide Orogeny that began uplifting these mountains some 65 million years years ago, the granite crystalline core of Greenhorn Mountain (and the Wet Mountain Range of which it is a part) warped upward through sedimentary rock.
Here are the most popular trails:
