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

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.

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

12/3/17 - Equestrians take note, winter maintenance might provide some unusual sights for your horse. Nice long loop with some challenging slopes and rocky areas. Cyclists can come on fast around blind curves, so pay attention both directions on narrow portions and switchbacks.

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.

Go the clock-wise direction (NE) from the parking lot. Better the steep decline to finish than the heart-stopping incline to end. Hike with cloud-cover if possible as there's no shade. Other-worldly calm when you're on the table top. If it weren't for the giant power towers, you'd think you were in paradise. Great views.

Good for short hike. Not much to look at and have neighborhoods and roads in view.
