I loved this place, the pathways are nice and wide so there’s plenty of room for walkers, runners, and biking. The views are awesome and it’s a good workout. Less foot traffic than Green Mountain which is nearby.

I liked the shortcuts between the switchbacks. It is an ok hike for a family with children.
There is no shade so i would choose an overcasted or cool day. The view is of the town and felt like an urban hike. I could tell that if there was rain, the trail would be a sloppy mess. I also prefer trails with a stream or some water. Next time im going another 20 minutes or so west on I70 to bigger adventures.

Awesome time only took 25 minutes up and 25 minutes down sun sets around 8pm and gets busy around 7. a little rock climbing but very cool views from the top

Very cool, easy, and fun hike! Has great views of Golden with tons of spots to stop and enjoy them near the top! Definitely recommend!

Fun quick trail with a great view of the Coors brewery. A little bit of mud but nothing crazy. A good choice for a nice hike close to Denver.

I liked this Hike. Just getting the Summer going and I liked that right at the beginning it challenged my big butt with a steep incline. Nice scenery too.

Great hike but quite muddy and slippery at some points, wear good shoes and you’ll be fine! Breathtaking views at the top.

This trail used to be much more pleasant but it has become over-travelled. The mountainside is being destroyed by people creating their own trails going straight down the fall line at every possible switchback on the hill. It’s eroding quickly, plants are being trampled, and nobody seems to care for it.

It was really great hike. Short and kind of easy

Easy hiking once on top of the Mesa. Definitely go to Golden Summit trail/stairs. Wonderful views from this point!

Very dog friendly. Great sunset views.

Unfortunately the trail is washed out post-snow melt. I’m sure lovely when it’s warmer but we couldn’t get very far with ankle deep mud & two pups.

great for kids

Nice and flat at the top with great views of golden, Denver and coors. Not too many people which was nice, but I did this on. Monday afternoon.

Beautiful hike with moderate incline to the top of the table as expected. Amazing view from the top.
There are so many different lengths of trail you can do, we opted for the short version to the top for a quick morning hike. Doesn’t quite get the mountain feel, but it’s great for a close to home hike.

If you are starting from the start point shown on this map be prepared to carry your bike up a mountain! Not an easy climb, very difficult, but there are easy tracks on top

Amazing view !

Beautiful view of Golden!

Nice climb, somewhat overgrown in parts. Amazing views from the mesa!

Awesome view and moderate difficulty. Be ware there is little to no shade so bring lots of sunscreen and water

I recorded my trail below so you can the way I went. I do the short version of this (1.4 miles round trip). I start from a Neighborhood road and switch-back up until he fork in the trail, I head west to the top, up the wooden stairs to the top of the rock with an awesome view! It's a short hike and pretty easy. It may be difficult for people not used to the altitude or out of shape but for people who hike often it may even be too easy or short! I like it because it's a good quick hike with an awesome view that can get done before work! It'll take about 30-35 mins depending on how in shape you are and long you stay at the top.

nice and close to home. views are ok, but plenty other trails in golden offer better views.

Good light hiking with great view of Golden.

Cool spot for an evening jog.

Great hike to the top with the dog, which was kept on leash per the trail rules. The sunset from this viewpoint is awe-inspiring. Short and sweet hike.

Couldn't quite figure out the loop since there were trails everywhere, but easily made it up and back down again with our two year old on my hubby's back. Beautiful view of Golden from the top!

A good hike. The trail was a little wet from the snow but a fun one for sure. Great views

Pretty view at the top! You can see over all of Golden, some pretty rocky views and all the way to the Denver skyline. It's pretty easy but toward the top gets kinda steep and the rocks were really loose. We did this hike in less than a half hour and went over to the Coors brewery after. Good hike if you're looking for something quick.
