Literally out my front door, this is a fun, historic little hike that takes you up a solidified volcanic flow to an exceptional overlook of Golden on one side and Denver metro on the other. On the plateau summit, it is amazing to see such expansive, undeveloped land so close to Denver. You may even see the herd of deer that inhabits this mountain. Cheers to Table Mountains Conservation Fund for keeping this area protected. Don't forget about South Table Mountain either; its 'summit' called Castle Rock has the distinction of being the destination of the old Funicular Railway that used to bring visitors to a dance hall in the sky! Only a few interesting remnants remain. All you need for TH info here:

Went to see some friends in CO. Instead of taking us to Eldorado canyon, they took us here where we suffered in the thick humid summer air and sun, instead of the cool shady canyon. The routes seemed fun, though my heatstroke blocked out the details. Meanwhile, the COORS brewery churned away directly below us, making the stifling atmosphere a little 'sweeter'.

For Pacific Northwest climbers, this is the same old familiar basalt, as can be found around Horsetheif Butte, Vantage, Beacon rock, or 2 Sisters. If you travel to CO to sample different climbing, head to Eldo!
