    Matt Pargett reviewed Table Rock Trail

    19 days ago

    Quick and fun hike with lots of parking at the trailhead. I went up the AT portion to the top, but I hear the full loop is fun if you're game for scrambling. Did the hike with a 4 year old who walked the whole way (with several breaks).

    I grew up in the area and never knew about this trail til recently. There's a good sized parking lot at the trailhead and a very established trail loop to the top. I went clock-wise on the loop and enjoyed the quick ascent (maybe 30 minutes to the top or so). Not much shade up top, and I went on a hot day, so be sure to have plenty of water if you go in the summer. Overall, a great little hike with some nice views of Melones reservoir.

    Great hike overall. The first 3.5ish miles are pretty level and pleasant to hike along. It's a little after the waterfall that the incline begins and then it's a mostly uphill hike the rest of the way. The incline never gets too bad though. Views from the top are great, even with the smoke from the fires.
    Bring lots of water. There's lots of parking at the trailhead, just be mindful that the restrooms are closed (for maintenance).

    Great hike! It starts with switchbacks pretty quick, but never seemed too steep. There's lots of views along the trail, with the best at the top. Worth the effort.
    The road to the trailhead is very established. Lots of RVs, campgrounds, and plenty of parking at the trail head. Arrive early to beat the heat and bring plenty of water.

    Quick and fun hike with a clear trail. Great views from the top, and a doable hike for a wide range of ages.

    Matt Pargett reviewed Whiteface Mountain Summit Trail

    Whiteface is a fantastic hike. As others have said, once the trail starts it is a constant uphill hike, which makes sense since it's a mountain..but still don't expect too much level terrain to rest your legs on. I started from the ASRC and it looked like parking filled up around mid-morning or so.

    Great hike with awesome views from the top. Not too much mud as of today, just small sections of it. Aside from the black flies, ugh, a great place to spend the day outside. Lots of parking at the trailhead too.

    Great views from the top. The middle elevations were really starting to melt on my way down, but the top was still very icy. Spikes worked well for me all the way to the tower.

    East River Trail is clear all the way up with the exception of a couple downed trees, but nothing that you can't walk around. No spikes needed until really the last few hundred meters of trail up to Indian Head. Beautiful trail and great view from the top.

    A little bit of snow and ice, but no issues getting to the top. Great views.

    Great hiking, just be ready for the environment...in the warmer months be ready for lots of bugs (mosquito's, ticks, etc), and know how to purify your own water. Over two days the trail was empty of any other people, and we had it all to ourselves. Reserve your campsites well in advance through the NPS website and get your keys for the canoe's on the lakes. We used the Arrowhead lodge to shuttle us to the trailhead, but there's lots of others that can do it too...and if you got your own boat you can moor off right at the trailhead.
