where arts meet nature

The Town of Green Mountain Falls is north of Pikes Peak and 11 miles west of Colorado Springs just off U.S. Highway 24. At an altitude of 7,800 feet, the Town is set in a picturesque narrow mountain valley surrounded on three sides by Pike National Forest. The El Paso County/Teller County line goes North – South through Green Mountain Falls. Natural assets include more than 20 miles of hiking, three creeks, waterfalls, a lake, rugged cliffs, forests, wildflowers, and abundant wildlife.

The weather is different at altitude

It's always beautiful in Green Mountain Falls, but often the weather is wildly different than in Colorado Springs. Bring layers!

Wildlife abounds

Deer and geese can be found around almost every corner. This is their home too. Take care of our animal community by keeping our place clean.

Getting to green mountain falls

Green Mountain Falls may feel remote and off the beaten path, but in reality we are easily accessible from everywhere.  Less than 10 minutes from Manitou Springs or Woodland Park, 30 minutes from the Colorado Springs Airport, and 90 minutes from downtown Denver.  .

Mountain access

The Green Mountain Falls Trails System consists of 16 magnificent trails totaling more than 20 miles that provide a variety of experiences. All are non-motorized hiking trails.

America and the Ute Pass Regional Trail, a 40-mile route from Colorado Springs to Cripple Creek, pass through the Town of Green Mountain Falls on a bicycle/pedestrian lane along Ute Pass Avenue.
Two of the Green Mountain Falls trails connect directly to the Ring the Peak Trail, a 57-mile-long loop that circumnavigates Pikes Peak. Most of the system consists of back country single track hiking trails carved out of the forest on the steep ramparts that overlook the Town and feature spectacular views.

You can also maps, and the latest information about the trails at gmfcotrails.org.​
