trail locations for Morganton, North Carolina

Really beautiful up there ...

Easy hike once you eventually find the trailhead. I was able to hike to the summit with a broken arm (casted) if that tells you the level of difficulty. Stunning views.

Not an easy hike but not too strenuous. The climb back up to table rock parking lot from shortoff is very steep. Great views of sunset and sunrise.

It's a great hike. Kid friendly. Beautiful Views!! If you don't want to drive the 12 miles on the gravel road....keep driving past the Table rock sign to Gingercake acres, you will see signs for it. It will take you right to it without the gravel roads...much faster!!

Very difficult trail but awesome experience. Me and my wife are in very good shape but it was challenging. Waterfalls are really nice.

The dirt road access is 12 miles from the main road,but well maintained. This hike is tough but the views are well worth it.

amazing views, dirt road to access

Beautiful views of the Linville River!

One of my favorites!!!

For me and my hiking companion (both 59) this was a difficult trail, but quite doable if you take your time both up and back. It is steep, with lots of rock "steps", but the views at the top are well worth the effort. We had a bit of trouble finding the path on the way down because of the rock scramble at the top. Be sure to note carefully where you come out of the scrub to climb the rock to the summit so that you can find it easily on the way back out. A very nice trail. (NOTE, from NC 181 heading north from Morganton, there is good signage to send you to the Table Rock picnic area. This is the road you should take. We followed GPS directions and took a much longer and more difficult road to the parking area.)

The lengthy drive on the gravel road was worth it. Fairly steep, rocky trail that leads to 360 breathtaking overlook. Also enjoyable views on your way up - not just once you get to the top!

Awesome Gods beautiful creation

Beautiful views ~ not too challenging, but definitely not an easy hike, either.

Amazing views!
