South Table Mountain Safari
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
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
