Perfect trail close to Denver! So glad I found this bc it’s a great option for when I want to get my dog out for a walk + see some Mountain View’s! Highly recommend for an easy to moderate (due to elevation gains) short hike!

For such a short hike, you get an incredible view of Golden at the top! I hiked on 1/15 and the trail was still quite muddy and icy. Spikes on your boots would help out alot but not necessary if you are cautious of where you step. But you definitely do need boots of some sort, runners won't cut it. Enjoy though!!

This hike was great and pretty easy. We parked by the trailhead on the street and started the ascent. It wasn’t very steep, but there were a lot of slick spots due to snow refreezing. Proper footwear recommended in those cases. The stairs at the top were also icy, but hopefully that’ll be gone soon! BEAUTIFUL VIEWS.

Great short walk/hike anytime of year! Took us about an hour up and back with stop at the top. The incline is not bad and worth it for the view of golden. Great place for sunset. We parked on the street in front and had no issues.

Great for a short day hike. Can finish quickly and have a nice view. It was windy and chilly when I went (end of December), but was still nice. There is some elevation change in the middle of the hike that can be steep for some, but most will be fine.

Excellent short hike close to Denver. Perfect for what I needed - a short, nearby hike for a weekday in December. I didn’t lose cell service, which is always a relief when hiking alone.

Nice easy day hike. Lots of options to extend into a longer outing or shorten into a quick explore. Dogs loves it! Started at 16699 Golden Hills road that has a few parking spots

Slightly steep elevation in middle but overall easy!

I love this trail!! So scenic once you make it to the top..even saw a mother carry her small child to the top. YOU CAN DO IT!!

Good fun hike. Definitely can be made more challenging by other boot beaten paths that have been made.

I think this is the Mesa featured in on the vintage Coors beer cans. The trail features a lovely view of Golden, Colorado and the surrounding areas.

Hiked it today with our dog starting from the Applewood side. Street parking only so we parked a couple blocks down from the east trailhead. Good rocky incline that's not too difficult then everything flattens out on top of the mesa. Wide open trail up top, nice and easy hike.

Great hike with beautiful scenery! Not to difficult of a trail but has challenging points and lots of pull offs!

Love it

Nice elevation-

I love Golden! This trail is a li the difficult but short and amazing at the top. There’s so much room to walk around to aaa different views of the metro area.

Great little neighborhood trail with nice views of Golden. Nice and easy hike too so a great way to get some walking in.

Great trail - steep start and finish but easy dirt roads and trails for the middle.

love this trail. right in my neighborhood, quick jaunt up to the peak, great if you want to get some blood flowing but don't really wanna take too much time or go far. lovely spot to watch the sun set over lookout mountain.

I love this quick little hike and do it often but today there's swarms of what looks like flying ants at the top on the rock! 7/16/18

Really great little hike! It's short with 450 ft of incline, so you do some nice uphill walking. The majority of the trail is switch backs, but there are shortcuts if you want to walk straight up. There's a short little rock scramble as you make it to the top. There's lots of cacti about, so keep eyes open if you have a pup with you. The view from the top is great. You look right down on the Coors Brewery and then you can see Denver in the distance. We went at 7:30 am and were in shade the whole time. It took us 30 minutes up and 15 minutes down.

fantastic views from the top. nice incline to get the blood pumping. wear shoes with plenty of traction.

Really cool views! There is not much shade so if you bring a dog, be wary of how hot the ground is. Such a cool area around this hike as well

I love this trail- however yesterday there were a few rattlesnakes on the trail!

Nice hike. The view point over Golden is always fun to show people and makes for great pictures. The trails themselves aren’t overly difficult. During the summer we have seen 2 rattlesnakes but they warned us of their presence well before it would have become a problem. The top is flat making it fun and easy to hike and bike around. Great local trail.

Love this! Great place to have visitors when here from out of state!

easy access from downtown golden, cool view (especially if you were wondering what the top of the Coors plant looks like), a few choices of up and down to mix it up if you want it steep or mellow. go to trail for quick mellow workout.

My husband and I completed this hike on June 25.

It was a hot day, and the trail is completely exposed, so we definitely worked up a sweat, even though it was short. It was moderately steep most of the way, with at least 20 steps at the end.

We loved the views from the top. We saw the entire city of Golden, the Coors factory, and much of the Denver metro area. The only bummer was that there were colonies of flying ants at the top, and we were swarmed, so we couldn't stand still long enough to take a decent picture.

Overall great hike. A must-do if you're in the area!

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.
