How to Run North Table Mountain

North Table Moutain is a big outer loop with many inner loops. The outer loop going clockwise is a gradual, rolling climb that finishes with a steep continual descent back into the parking lot. There are trails that split every couple of miles or so to climb to the top of the mountain directly. The mountain is quite flat on top, much like a mesa.

Great views of the Front Range, Golden, and Coors Brewery. Yummm.

Note: Rattlesnakes are known to be present on this mountain.
