Climb 600 feet above Golden to one of its guardian mesa-tops. Big views of the Denver skyline and the continental divide reward the 0.9-mile one-way climb.

One of two mesa-tops flanking the east side of Golden, Colorado, North Table Mountain is an easy-access day hike that offers spectacular views and many more miles of trail to explore. This quick-and-dirty escape begins at the top of Peery Parkway and follows a narrow singletrack trail up the mountain's east slope. The trail winds above houses, eventually abutting a rocky shelf that is the moutnain's capstone. On warm winter days, expect to see climbers using the trail to this point at mile 0.6 to access south-facing traditional climbing routes below the mountain's summit.

This route continues to the edge of the plateau and following it south through open scrubby desert to the mountin's high-point above Golden. The 360-degree view offers a peek at downtown Denver and to the COntinental Divide above Clear Creek to the west.
