The Tilting Mesa loop around North Table Mountain was challenging but rewarding hike. The views at the top make the first hill worth the trip.
Genesee Mountain is a nice hike that isn’t too hard and is easy to get to. The bonus is that there is a herd of bison that live nearby.
On all of my trips to Golden I saw the South Table Mountain towering over the town like a silent guardian. I never thought that I would go to the top of it…or that it wouldn’t be that hard!
