Lava flows formed North Table Mountain and its sister mesa, South Table Mountain, about 60 million years ago. Today, North Table Mountain Park visitors enjoy panoramic views, 15-plus miles of trails and breath-taking rock climbing.
Rattlesnake Study There is an ongoing Rattlesnake Study at North Table Mountain Park, researchers may be off-trail.
The Fairmount Trail is a natural surface trail between the City of Arvada and City of Golden. An access trail to North Table Mountain Park allows visitors to make a trek to the mesa without a car ride from points north and east. While only about three miles long, the Fairmount Trail affords connection with the 14-mile Ralston Creek Trail at Long Lake Park, providing for extended rides through residential Arvada.
The north trailhead is located on 64th Parkway next to the entrance of Arvada Reservoir and Long Lake Park. The south end of the trail can be accessed from Easley Road between Ridge Road and 48th Place.
