Trail Description
About this trail
The most well marked trails on south table all start at the bottom and climb to the loop on top. From the parking area ride towards the NREL building and look for the trail system on your right. Ride up to the split and decided which way to go. I find the left fork easier to climb as the right fork has a lot of larger looser rocks, but both trail end at the same loop. Climb until you reach the crushed gravel loop on top. It's a fun loop with lots of Slick rock type features sticking out of the gravel. On the North West side of the loop there's a double track trail that continues to climb and take you to the "Castle". A large rock feature that overlooks Coors Brewing, from here it's a fun downhill all the way back to the parking lots.

There are so many trail to explore and many different climbs and descents to be done. This trail can be as a quick :30 minute ride or a long epic 2 hour ride, it's all up to you.

Q: Does this trail lead into golden? -Guest

A: Yes! There are three trails that lead right down into Golden. From the topi prefer the middle one. The trail down closest to castle rock has some nasty switchbacks

Review: As of 3.4.18 parts of the eastern side are very muddy. Western side is dry and fun. Good for afterwork or before a beer ride.

Review: First time at the trail and it was a fun mellow ride. Some loose rocks and deeper ruts in spots. But I will definitely come back for some hot laps.

Review: Great (quick) beginner ride. Awesome views considering its in town. I recommend starting on single track climb that starts between the NREL visitor center and the apartments. This connects to a wide gravel trail that goes out to castle rock. If you are looking for technical single track go elsewhere.

Review: Riding S Table Mountain is enough to prompt the question; "on what day did God create this trail, and couldn't he have rested on that day, too?". This is NOT a mountain bike trail network like it looks. It is a dirt road with offshoots that *look* like single track. However, these supposed *singletrack* trails are a mixture of natural drainage, wildlife trails, and maybe a couple old two track Jeep roads. They are overgrown with chest high weeds that give little view of the trail. They are also pretty much flat. If there is much of any elevation change, the trail changes into loose rock and gravel. Not optimal climbing or descending, especially on my SS rigid 29er. I wouldn't suggest someone to go here even if I didn't like it. I wouldn't send a beginner there either in fear they would give up mountain biking indefinitely. This trail should be removed from Singletracks and the trail itself should be nuked. If it was possible to give a 0 star rating; I would.

Review: The map takes you to the wrong trailhead. The mnt biking trailhead is on the south east side of the mountain. It is off Colfax and I70. Kind of hidden behind apartments. The trail is an easy climb. Great for after work. Great views and not very crowded.

Review: If you follow the directions provided by the Singletracks App, you will find yourself on an advanced level trail, not a beginner trail.
