The Upper Table Rock provides a wonderful hiking trail to the top of this enormous flat rock. Spring time is the best to catch the best flower and endangered wildflower displays and to avoid the heat. The views are spectacular from the top. Here you can see the most of Sams Valley and Rogue Valley south to Ashland and Mt McLaughlin.
Hiking Upper Table Rock is a moderately easy 2.8-mile trip, with a 720 foot gain. At the 1.1-mile point there is a final steep pitch on the trail suddenly, then you reach the table's amazingly flat summit. Although easy for some to hike, we suggest you be in good health to hike it, especially in the summer.
The Lower Table Rock trail is longer and rockier, climbing through shadier woods. The path climbs, steeply at times, after 1.6 miles the path suddenly crests at the plateau and becomes an old road. Walk another 200 yards up the road and fork left on a trail that ends at a 200-foot cliff & viewpoint. Lower Table Rock was dedicated as a nature preserve by The Nature Conservancy in 1979.
