Tilting Mesa Trail on North Table Mountain

Tilting Mesa Trail on North Table Mountain

Once you get up the 3/4 mile from the parking lot to the top, all the trails up on North Table Mountain near Golden are pretty much flat. From the top, you get views of the Rockies to the west and the city of Denver to the east.

There’s a side trail to Lichen Peak, the highest point on the plateau, and there is a full loop (part of which was closed when I was there) that takes hikers back down to the starting parking lot.
