High Point

he ride starts from the North Table Mountain Park main parking lot with a grueling climb. At the top of the hill, you'll see a climbing area to your right and a trail merge ahead. Top out at the trail merge and continue straight onto the Tilting Mesa Trail (North Table Loop continues on to the right).

Enjoy some cross country riding along the top of North Table mountain. You'll merge onto Mesa Top briefly and continue on towards Rim Rock trail. You'll see the entrance to Rim Rock trail flanked by two large rocks and signs. Rim Rock is a fun, flowy climb through tall grass with views looking north towards Boulder. There is an awesome viewpoint as you crest the highpoint of the trail that overlooks Denver. From here, enjoy a fun, flowy descent with a couple technical moments.

You'll finish by crossing a small bridge and ending at a stone staircase. Walk or climb your bike up the staircase and continue on this trail (Mesa Top). At your next junction, make a left onto Cottonwood Canyon Trail. This a fun descent which will connect you with North Table Loop. There is one technical rock garden where beginner and some intermediate riders will be more confident walking their bike.

Once you connect with North Table Loop, you'll continue all the way around the perimeter of North Table Mountain and return back to the parking lot.
