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.
