The Green Mountain Lodge, located a half-mile’s hike from Flagstaff Mountain Road, was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1934.
The Green Mountain Lodge was built in the classic “park rustic” style of the early 20th century. Boulder Open Space and Mountain Park’s website provides more details: “The roof truss structure was constructed from West Coast heartwood pinned with oak dowels. Paving flags for the patio terrace and the interior floor were brought from the quarries of Lyons. The stones that form the walls are local. The shingles are in shades of 12 colors and sizes and are arranged on the roof and grade from antique green on the eves through grey and burgundy to light red on the ridge crest.”
The Green Mountain Lodge was recently rehabilitated and reopened for public use, and it is popular for meetings and picnics. It lies within the City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks.
