nature trips




Not really a hike but a really awesome afternoon walk. There are a lot of mountain bikers and trail runners. Cool views!

A lot of people at the trailhead and at the beginning but less so the farther you go. Parking was a challenge but the views were great!

Not great views or hiking. I’d recommend a different trail, looked fun for biking though!

We hit this just right on a Tuesday morning. Left from the trailhead just before 9am. We didn't see anyone at all for the first 2 hours. No bikes either! Also no rattlesnakes. Be sure to take the short excursion to Lichen Peak for cool views. Trailhead has lots of parking + bathrooms. Print out a map to take with you so that you know what all your trail options are; it's fun adding on extra little side trails if it's nice weather.

Busy trail but nice views of downtown and surrounding areas.

This one was rough for me in the beginning. It was very steep, but once you get to the top it’s smooth sailing. I am overweight, so that is why it was more difficult.

This is my favourite 7 mile running trail in the metro area. It has challenging hills that are spaced with level segments and downhills.

Good for if you want some fresh air but don't want to drive far from Denver. Took my dog there to stretch his legs after work and I'll definitely be back. Don't be fooled, this a city hike, but you get some decent views and a good workout.

Very accessible trail head with ample parking, great place for a sunset (or sunrise) once you reach the table top. You could explore for as short or as long as you like once you get up top.

Did this yesterday. Seems like a better biking or running trail rather than hiking. Mostly flat, not very interesting, not great views.

Laxed biking spot and good slope for hiking

Beautiful hike. Great views of Golden and the foothills if you can find your way to the top.

Nicely worn trail, good elevation gains, city scape scenery, cliff side views:)

Many, many snakes during the warmer months!

I saw a rattlesnake in the path today. Jefferson county researchers I encountered on the trail advising hikers to leave park due to high volume of snakes going back to their dens for winter. They said they were closing the park for the year as of end of day. Bummer b/c it was a perfect day to be up there. One of my favs! Safety first.

This isn't my favorite hike. At one point the trail ran along an industrial warehouse...not what I'm looking for when I'm hiking. But the real downfall was having to yield to all the mountain bikers. None of them called out their approach so I was often left to scramble out of the way. Mountain bikers have clearly taken over so maybe it's best to just give them this one.

trail is good for hiking, trail running, or biking. tends to get crowded. almost no shade, so wear plenty of sunscreen.

Among the toughest runs I've ever completed along the North Table Loop, but the difficulty was worth the payoff of some incredible views. Can't wait to go back to Colorado and run it again!

The rock climbing was fun but we were in the mood for the woods.
