Great work out hiking’s kind of hard finding the trail head once you are on the road, you need to pass through two gates before you can say you found the trail head..,first gate is the first one where you park your car, then head on that road until you came across a junction on the left, this road is as big as one you are walking on, take that road you should see a gate, you are now in the right path, continue up hill until you are on top..good luck!

This is a fire road with a steep climb but the view from the top is amazing

Great steep trail!

there's a better way to the top of this mountain, but it won't leave u feeling quite as sore and tired.. so go this way (lol) #Beautiful

Great hike. Would not recommend unexperienced hikers. Gradual down hill then a grueling climb to the top. Bring lots of water in the summer. Once you reach the top it’s the best feeling. Definitely a favorite.

Great workout and will challenge you depending on your speed

First time difficult in January second time march not so bad

The distance is listed at 5.5 miles round-trip, but I'm positive its more than this. PDF Maps(Avenza) gave me a reading of just over 4 miles one way. Either way, its a tough hike, especially after the junction(see uploaded picture with comment)...its all uphill from the junction. Directions: if you're heading towards Prather, make a left at Wellbarn Avenue, and follow this for a few miles until you come to a big gate. Squeeze through a small gate entry, and follow the Wellbarn Road Trail for approx. two miles. At this point you will come to a junction (see upload picture with comment), take the left road to get to Big Table Mountain Ecological Reserve. About a quarter of a mile from the junction, you'll come to another gate (see pic) ...from this point get ready for a tough work-out.
