The "ambitious hikers" remark is nonsense. This is a long, but easy trail. You can walk as much or as little of it as you want. This is the most heavily used trail in the Boulder Mountain Park system -- wave to your friends and say hi.
The north end of this trail is at Chautauqua Park. The south end is a trailhead on Eldorado Springs Drive. Many trails branch off from this one.
If you care, cell phone coverage is very good on the Mesa Trail.
