“Big climbs. Rowdy descents. Amazing 360-degree views.”— Leslie Kehmeier
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
Shortly after cresting the climb, the trail descends. Slightly at first, and then almost as steeply as the initial climb. This descent is raucous and winding, but be sure to keep an eye out for other trail users heading up the hill. At the bottom of the descent, North Table Loop contours on bench cut trail back to the north, bypassing Neighborhood Access Trail on your right and Cottonwood Canyon Trail on your left.
Continue straight, as the trail winds and rolls its way around the table's east side. Eventually, you'll come to the second largest descent of the ride, where you'll be greeted with some very tight switchbacks. Once at the bottom of this descent, you'll be at a junction with Lithic Trail, a short neighborhood access trail. Stay left to continue on the ride.
From Lithic Trail, the ride climbs and then continues to contour the table. This section of the ride is fast, flowing, and fun. So, open it up and really get some speed going! Eventually, after bypassing Table Rock and Mesa Top for a second time, you'll be at the North Table parking lot.
