You'll think you're in the backcountry while mountain biking this Front Range gem.

Once you're parked, you can choose to ride this trail either counterclockwise or clockwise. My personal recommendation is CCW, which entails you head up the steep paved road on the east-southeast corner of the parking lot first. The climb is about 10 minutes of grunt work and then on to flat ground and some fast winding rocky downhill with a couple of technical spots. MTBproject has a great write-up on the loop. You can also check out all of the connecting trails if the 7.5 North Table Loop isn't enough for you.

Pack List

  • I would just recommend you bring a helmet and some water
  • Don't forget your repair kit if you want to circumvent any trail damages

Rode this trail(table loop) the other day. Around 8 miles total. Very challenging but fun. The paved road going up is brutal I suggest take a different trail. Beware of bikers coming the opposite way of you. Will def do again. Pack plenty of water

I hiked it and it calculated as closer to 8.5 miles round trip. Definitely tons of mountain bikers but definitely a good hike as well!

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.

While most people go snowshoeing near the Bear Lake or Glacier Gorge area in RMNP, Wild Basin is a much less trafficked option.
