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.
Getting to the top of the mesa is a great warm-up, once you get to the top, it's very easy-going. Lots of paths to choose from, so even if you see a lot of people on the way up, because it's so spread out, you'll still have a nice, quiet time. No shade at all, so not a favorite for the middle of summer, but great for when it's cooler. Lots of grass and open space, great views of Golden and Denver, very peaceful.
