    Scott Purvis reviewed Table Rock Trail

    17 days ago

    6-30-18 Got an early start today before the crazy busy Saturday rush, we were the first to the top and it was a clear day. Saw every peak but Rainer and Baker. I think this was number 19 trips up for me today and it never gets old.

    Nice trail, well kept. Starts off by the falls which are incredible, then hike up to the suspension bridges pretty cool. Enjoyed the bungee jumpers.

    Don’t waste your time. Poorly marked, 1/3 of hike was on old road under high voltage power lines, the actual “ghost town” is a called a dump where I’m from! Definitely not worth the non scenic hike to get there. One water fall was cool and that is it.

    We started at the parking lot behind Olive’s market. Poorly marked is an understatement, some people on all trails have given good advice on getting there. Once there very cool photo ops. The bridge is cool too , wish we could have see a moving train to get a good photo of.

    Jan, 9th 2017 Nice little hike with great views. You kind of have to make you own trail down to the blow hole over the rocks and slippery mud. Love the sign about being sucked in and Killed, and I do recommend staying a fair distance away from it.

    8-28-16. The road to the actual trailhead is fun if your in a 4x4 with good tires and some ground clearance. With that said its a short hike from that point, but most people park and walk down the road to trailhead. The trail now has some ropes to assist you down the steep part, though not needed. Casual walk up the creek bed to an amazing waterfall. Only giving this 3 stars because not really much of a hike, though 5 stars for the actual waterfall.

    MOSQUITOS. That's all I have to say about this freaking place. Never again. Why can't we enter a 0 star?

    We hiked this on 6-9-16. Weather about 70deg. so perfect for this hike. Beautiful views, though watch your step cuz it's a long way down to the river. The trail is loose pebbles all the way so wear good hiking shoes, not those tourist shoes... Lol you know the ones I mean. At the top you can watch the rock climbers on monkey face though the day we were there I watched for a hour and only saw some dude eat a sandwich. Lots of people and dogs, however i like the shorter and steeper hikes so I did give this one a 4 star plus the views are great.

    Scott Purvis reviewed Barlow Butte Trail

    about 2 years ago

    The trail head was about 50 yards before the main parking lot on the left and about 50 yards down the dirt road on the left. Trail was in rough shape "just the way I like it" some fallen trees, branches and over grown in spots just follow the signs. I tracked it with Alltrails app and found that the trail I followed "Barlow Butte" didn't line up with the app, it forked off and according to the app map I wasn't on a trail. HOWEVER I WAS and ended up at the top of Barlow Butte" so don't freak out, just follow the sings and have fun. Other than that it was your typical mountain trail, stream, trees and a top of the butte with great views, though no real good view of Mt Hood. Short but the last part was a little steep for some good cardio.

    4-9-16 Our traditional hike up Table Rock was early this year, really didn't think the road would be open yet... BUT IT WAS! Some snow drifts on the section from parking area to the actual OLD trail head that heads into the woods but nothing too bad. We took the shortcut that bypasses the bolder field (not going to tell you where that is). At the switchbacks near the top there was a lot of snow drifts that had NO tracks in them , not fun but yet again it was. You really had to know the trail because in spots it just disappeared under the snow. We kept falling through the snowdrifts... At the top about 2 to 3 feet of snow I'm guessing. Clear day so you could see St. Helens, Rainer, Adams Hood, and Jefferson. On way down finally saw the 2 groups that started at same time we did, they went normal route and had a very hard time going through the bolder field.

    11-27-15. Only giving 1 stars. This place had everything I dislike in over traveled trails, many many people, dogs and dogs off leash (not everyone like your dog like you do) the trail was more like a dirt road it was so overused, I thought for sure we would round a corner and see a Starbucks. Oh yeah... decided to take a side trail and ran across a cardboard/fern bum house. The only reason this got 1 star was no option for 0. Also broken car glass in parking lot, luckily not ours. I'll post a photo of the stone house ( with the graffiti ).

    11-7-15 2nd Time hike here... The first part of the trail through the cow pasture is pretty boring, however still better than sitting on the couch! After about 3/4 of a mile you come the the first waterfall flowing right under the road, very pretty. Head up the trail about 200 yards for you next excellent view of a water fall (wow) you can even walk behind this one and have a seat for your meditation - or whatever you want to call it, lol. If your camera has a Slow-Motion feature I highly recommend taking 60 seconds of video of the fall from behind (this was so cool to replay) The trail continues on so enjoy. Trail in good shape, no to many people that day.

    11-8-15 My annual trip up table rock... It was getting a little late in the season and not sure if I would make it up since the road is snowed in most of the winter. This was my first time up by myself. I knew the weather was going to be poor, as in pouring rain however it did stop near the top so it could snow sideways (a total blast) no joking I loved the whole thing. The trail was still in good shape, I did take the shortcut and didn't see anyone until the very top, they said the regular trail was washed out in one area and it was hard to get by. The fog and snow was so thick at the top you could only see 100 yards but that was ok, still one of the best hikes up.

    Beautiful hike in Sedona AZ. We started at 7:15 before the real heat and crowds started. Had to park in the overflow parking lot since we didn't have 4x4 with HIGH clearance, besides we were here to hike, it just wasn't as pretty as the actual trail head. No cell reception at trail head so we couldn't check in with the app. All in all the trail in easy and scenic views of all the red rock and what I think are yucca plants, the very tall things with lots of yellow flowers. The only steep part is at very end with very cool stair like rocks to the top, then the bridge is right after that. The actual bridge is so awesome to walk across, I guess some day it's going to give way but today wasn't that day for us. Got some great photos with nobody but us on the bridge. If you continue on a little farther you can find a nice rock to sit down and take in the real beauty of the mountains without anyone around.

    Scott Purvis reviewed Schuerman Mountain Trail

    about 3 years ago

    Trail head is right behind the high school, as in parking lot boarders the trail head parking. Trail has lots of small rocks that weren't great for walking, trail itself was not that pretty though you did have some nice views of the red rocks and Sedona. It was a nice little workout short and a little steep. Nobody was on the trail which is always a plus with me. I'm still giving it 1 star because I've seen a lot of great hikes, I will say my wife gave it a 3 so one of us must have heat stroke as it was very warm.
