Great views from the top. Took the dogs up without much of a problem. The long trek out to this hike was well worth it

I went with a friend last Sunday and it wasn't busy at all. We both needed a little escape from reality and spent a few hours at the top enjoying and soaking in the beauty of the views. Great little workout too!

Hard trail. Downhill from the Table Rock road and 1430 elevation on the way back up. I went out and back for 6.67 miles. I ran down but had to walk a good portion back up. Beautiful and worth it.

In my opinion, Table Rock has the best 360 degree views I have found in NC. I love this place. The hike is steep but short.

Great hike with phenomenal views. Strenuous ascent takes about 45 minutes to an hour, them very easy cross-country hiking across the top of the ridge. I have only gone about three miles across so I can't speak for the entire 14 mile hike.

This is my favorite trail in the gorge. It has absolutely the best views of the gorge and eastern side valley as you walk the ridge. There are numerous camp sites near the Chimneys and just south of Shortoff Mountain. THERE IS NO WATER ANYWHERE ON THIS TRAIL AS OF NOV 2016. The bog and water tree are dry, so plan accordingly. Take some time to linger around the Chimneys and explore. Many access this trail from Wolf Pit parking lot, but I find it easier to start at Table Rock.
