My first hike, so far. It was very quiet, my friend and I were able to visit without too much interruption. The weather was warm but not hot, still broke up a sweat, which is good. The view once we were on top was always breath-taking. It never fails to entertain, especially the little ones on field trips. Just make sure you are pretty careful especially when taking selfies on the edge. It's a long way down and people have fallen off of it before. We didn't encounter a whole lot of wild life either, lots of lizards, tiny frogs with different colours, some squirrels, thank goodness there were no snakes.There was a flock of turkey vultures circling around on top of the mountain. The shrubs and most of the plants were all beautiful, just blooming.

The hike was a bit long for an oldster like me but it was well worth it. The views from the top were gorgeous and we got to watch a black bear roaming below the cliff. The ponds had water and there were flowers everywhere.

Reasonably steep hike with gorgeous views of the valley and Mt McLoughlin. The hike up and down can take as little as 45 minutes if you don't stop and go at a reasonable speed, but where is the fun in that?! Most people take small breaks on the way up and enjoy the views. At the top you get to explore the flat table top like area and go to the different sides to get different views. Take your time and let yourself explore.
I said it would be good for hot days, but if it is too hot, it might not be. Bring water on warm and hot days, as there is no water up on top. This is a must visit, as it is relatively short and you don't get much of a better view!
Both table rocks, especially the upper one, get very busy on the weekends. Parking lots fill up fast! The trail never feels too crowded though and the top is so big and open that it doesn't feel crowded up there either.
My only complaint is they do not allow dogs, not even on leashes, on either of the table rocks... I would go more often if I could take my pup!

From my perspective Lower Table Rock is a harder hike -- I had to stop more -- and the climb doesn't start as close to the parking lot as Upper Table Rock. Both are absolutely worth it. These are uphill climbs. It's fun to walk around the top; the views are spectacular. These are not hard climbs if you are physically fit and used to walking uphill.
