May 22 (Wednesday) at 6:30pm at South Table Mountain 


1829 Denver W Dr.
Golden, CO 80401


Starting at the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), we’ll do an out and back from the east end of the mesa to the western-most point which overlooks the town of Golden. There’s an initial, short climb to the top of the mesa that’s not very tough at all, then it’s mostly flat on top. Once we make the initial ascent, it’s an easy run. Some people believe this run offers the best views!

·         6 miles total distance, single track and jeep road

·         500 feet elevation gain
