Do not bring your dogs, there are many snakes. We encountered a large bull snake and a huge, angry rattle snake. Having my dog on leash gave me anxiety due to the tall grasses and narrow paths. Also, there is the Colors factory next to 3 miles of the hike along with a highway. It was very noisy.

I personally love this trail, It’s a good ride and there are different trails to take up to the top. Great ride up with good views.

The first incline is strenuous but the rest is not very difficult. Good views but I got tired of stopping to let bikes pass every couple minutes. Definitely won't be back.

The first incline is strenuous but the rest of the hike is nothing. View is pretty nice.

The trail is decent, but honestly probably won't hike again unless I do the full North loop. Great proximity to Denver, so it was very busy, and the parking lot fills up quickly. I'd say go try it out for yourself on a sunny day if you're short on time. Sidenote, most of the mountain bikers were polite, but this trail does have a lot of bicycles and a few bad apples who will roll up on your six pretty quick without warning.

great area to hang out and climb, hike, or mountain bike. The North Table Loop bike route took us a little less than an hour and a half with some stops. It was dry 4/1, not sure about now after the little snow

It’s neat once you get to the top. There are a ton of trails you can catch. Lots of mountain bikers, but it’s a wider trail and there’s room for all. There was some mud yesterday, but no ice or snow.

Amazing hike great views, but a lot of bicycles in the week, bring sunblock and a lot of water.

Great trail. I suggest taking the south trail head 1st to this loop (versus the north). Don't let the up portion scare you, it's short and after that... the trail is nothing but gravy!


this is a good hike. not too busy and friendly people. hike on!!!

Pretty muddy today. But great hike, beautiful views, and good work out.

Went off trail without knowing it and ended up at a dead end- had to turn around and backtrack. Good trail overall, inclined and rocky.

Had a little trouble finding the trail. Once we did it was a great hike.

Difficult but awesome! Be aware of the many bikers on the trail if you are planning on hiking or running the trail. The views were gorgeous and I would definitely do it again!

Good easy stroll. Parking lot full and many people, dogs and bikes on trails all around. Good view and vistas.

Was fun , great for a quick weekend hike ! Was pretty active a lot of bike riders but they were courteous and path was shared .
Great views found a little hidden water fall that was frozen ! Kids loved it would go back again .

Pretty boring at this time of year.

It’s close to denver and has great views. A nice trial
To hike when you just need to get outside in the afternoon.

Very moderate incline and declines over the long trail. Quite populated but not overbearing. Beautiful scenery and overall great weekend hike!

Nice hike close to home. There are foxes/ coyote in the area so please, please keep your dogs on leash. Saw poor Suzie getting cornered by a pack of 4, i was too far to see what exactly they were. Thankfully the owner retrieved the dog with no major issue but it could very well have gone another way.
I spoke with a jeffco ranger who said a female mountain has been known to frequent the area so please keep your furry friends close and also, pack out their poo.

The views were great and there weren’t too many ppl since I went on a Wednesday but the storms last week made parts of the trail incredibly muddy/slippery... would definitely go again though when the trail is in better shape! Bring sunscreen though since the trail is rarely shaded and know that the Rim Trail portion is closed beginning of February through July (pretty sure those were the dates).

We completed a 3.8 mile loop from North Table Loop to Mesa Top Trail to Cottonwood Canyon Trail. There was a lot of snow on the top of the mesa, but it was a fantastic hike, with some neat views. The mesa's totally exposed (no shade), so it actually makes for a really good winter hike-- I'm sure the sun beating down could be brutal in the middle of the summer.

not good for hiking on a sunday. lots of mountain bikes and crowds -- not peaceful at all. There is no shade, everything is brown and there are busy roads in view almost the whole time. I can see how it might be nice for something like a weekday sunset hike or sunrise run because it's mostly flat and easy footing. But next time I want a weekend hike to get away from the city bustle, I will definitely take the time to drive somewhere more picturesque and remote.

Fun trail! Easy to follow, nice for bikers, has a few shady spots with good views. Parking’s available at trailhead. I went feb 9 and the Rim Rock trail along with the east portion of the Mesa Top trail (black diamond part) were closed.

A bit muddy because of the recent snow, but fairly easy over all.

Great trail to get your outdoor exercise done! Trail was mostly clear of ice and where the snow was it wasn’t bad going thru. I was never close to falling, that’s how I judge the trails in the winter.

Difficult straight-up hike at the beginning of the trail but lovely vistas at the top and sections of flat trail for recovery. We went early on a Sunday and the parking lot was full when we finished. Lots of mountain bikers but everyone was considerate.

Great hike! Has a good mix of elevations with beautiful views of Denver and the mountains. There are directional signs to keep you on the right path. Saw a coyote not far from the trail. A couple other times I’ve seen deer.

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!
