“A rolling grassland trail that circumnavigates North Table Mountain.”— Tom Robson
Snakebite Identification and First Aid
Be sure not to miss the viewpoint off of Lichen Peak, the park's highest peak.
After bearing left at the junction with Mesa Top Trail you'll encounter a small climb that quickly becomes a descent after the Y-intersection with Tablerock Trail. Continue to follow the contours of the mesa as North Table Loop Trail skirts the northern end of North Table Mountain.
Shortly after the trail passes the other end of Mesa Top, you'll encounter the most difficult feature of this trail - a steep, switchbacked climb. Take this torturous ascent past Cottonwood Canyon Trail, and Neighborhood Access Trail. Shortly after these trail junctions, the climb becomes shallower and you'll find yourself on top of the mesa! Take in the beautiful front range views, but don't linger long... The smells from the Coors water treatment plant can be brutal depending on wind direction.
Once North Table Loop passes the Tilting Mesa Trail, you'll encounter a minor, but steep descent directly into the North Table parking lot.
