Long before Green Mountain Falls, Co. existed, a trail ran by the site. This trail, known as the Ute Pass Trail, was used first by the Ute tribes, then Spanish explorers and finally by white settlers moving west. This scenic mountain community was one of three towns set up as vacation spots first for dust-weary Kansans, then upper-class Easterners. Today, the trail has been paved over and is still used as Route 24.
Outdoor enthusiasts flock to the Pike National Forest and its wide range of activities, from driving up 14,110-foot Pike's Peak to camping in areas such as picturesque Guanella Pass.
