Not challenging but requires fitness for long gradual uphill walk. Magnificent views all the way up and the top is amazing. All the way to San Francisco Bay on a clear day.

Beautiful vistas ,but the terrain on Coyote Peak Trail is difficult at certain locations near the peak.

While the first mile or so is dirt trail hiking, the rest is up a fire road. So while the views are spectacular, the immediate surroundings are pretty bleak.

Good trail with some small creek crossings, redwood trees, slight elevation change, some nice open paths, brushy areas, areas with poisen oak, wear good shoes as there are a few areas where you may slip if you dont have good traction.

Nice, moderate level hike. I did it in fog/rain so the views were nonexistent, but I can imagine how great it is in nicer weather. I'll revise my rating if/when I do it again. The meh part for me was the trail. I'd rather walk up dirt paths than gravel roads. Kind of takes away from the illusion that I'm in nature.

Trail is uphill the whole way, but a nice, moderate incline with plenty of shade along the way. I hiked until the trail split off to the Palisades trail, ate lunch and admired the view, then came back down. All in all I believe I took about 5-6 hours to complete the hike. The views of the valley and the palisades are beautiful. Next time when I have more time I'd like to do it as part of the greater Palisades/Mount Saint Helena hike. Definitely recommend!

Great workout, and the unusual rock art done by either native american's or someone who had a lot of spare time, are fascinating.

*Be mindful to stay on the main trail, otherwise you encounter a LOT of poison oak. This was a wonderful hike, we went fairly early in the morning, didn't see a lot of people, walked a few miles, would definitely recommend.

It was a good hike. I would give it 3.5 stars. Amazing view at the top. Like other reviews said, it is mostly in the sun so I wouldn't do it on a very hot day.

Our group did this as a shuttle hike. On the initial part of the trail make sure to keep right and look for the sign post. We didn't and it cost us the out and back oops that you see on the track. This is a serious and fairly technical hike due to the surfaces that you are walking on. Great views not only from the top of Table Rock but also along the Palisades trail.
