North & South Table Mountain Safari


This is a great tour of North and South Table Mountains combined. Watch for dear, coyotes, rabbits and the occational rattle snake. Start in the Applewood neighborhood, accessing the trailhead at Old Quarry Road. This trailhead provides single track to the mesa's top. Once on top head West on single and double track to the back side of the Castle Rock feature. The second trail to the South can be descended, but some hiking is likely. Even further South are ridable trails into the residential neighborhoods north of Old Golden Road.

Once down, follow the pavement on 13th and head West to Ford Street. Follow Ford as it curves and then ends at the West side of North Table Mountain. Turn right onto Pine Ridge Drive and look for a neighborhood trailhead.

Take the new "ring" trail that wraps around the North side of the mountain without ever going to the top. Or go over the top on the nearby gravel road and follow single tracks to another gravel road leading down on the Northwest side.

There's an access trail to the new developments north of the mountain or follow the "ring" trail around to the Northeast and look for a neighborhood access trail down to a nearby paved road. This trail is Jefferson County Open Space, but requires hopping a fence.

Once back on pavement head towards Easley. Take Easley South to either 50th or Salvia Street & 44th to McIntyre. Head South on McIntyre to 32nd. Head East on 32nd to Kendrick.

Follow Kendrick South and then West as it curves towards Rolling Hills Country Club. Just before the country club gates turn South on a Jefferson County Open Space trail up to an abandoned agricultural ditch. The ditch has an accompanying flat trail that wraps East around South Table Mountain and back to the route's starting point.

This is a great mixed terrain route close to metro Denver that's ridable nearly all year around. However, be careful on top of South Table Mountain. There are several single and double track options with land ownership unmarked.
