Jefferson County Open Space opened the parking area to public use at North Table Mountain Park from Highway 93 north of Golden on Monday, June 21. Visitors will encounter areas of construction for the permanent restroom, kiosk and screening berm on the south end of the parking area and a trail bypass will connect the parking area to the formal, designated trails. The temporary kiosk will provide information about North Table Mountain Park and Park brochures will be available. Open Space encourages visitors to use and replace the park brochures at the end of their visit. A Park dedication event has not been scheduled at this time.

Staff has placed signs within the park that identify designated trails, sensitive areas, seasonal closure areas and areas closed for restoration. Visitors are reminded to stay on designated trails to protect habitat, minimize resource damage, allow for restoration, and reduce the opportunity for weeds to take hold in disturbed areas. Trails crews will continue to improve treads, realign segments of old roads and construct new trails as part of the designated trail system over the next few years. The total mileage of looped trails will about double over the next 2 or 3 years.

For information on the Park Management Plan for North Table Mountain Park or other Open Space properties see the Open Space website at http://jeffco.us/openspace/openspace_T56_R28.htm or call the Open Space office at 303-271-5925.

NOTE: This brand new trailhead has seven dedicated diagonal spaces for horse trailers. Proceed north from Golden on Highway 93. Look for the trailhead just past the last subdivision in Golden. Morning rides are recommended, as the top of the mesa is not a great place to be in an afternoon thunderstorm with lightning.
