South Table Mountain is nice. I live in the apartments at the base and the mesa was a deciding factor for moving there. There is an easier switch back trail behind the Camden Apartments and a more challenging "straight up" trail behind the Montrachet apartments. Once at the top, the views are pretty cool, especially at night overlooking denver metro. I've hiked in literally all weather conditions and it's been pretty fun. During the spring and summer though, watch out for the Rattlesnakes!
