Very tough hike! The day I was there it was sunny with a nice breeze, there isn't much shade so make sure you wear sunscreen and wear a hat, I also suggest bring plenty of water! There is a lot of fire damage but you still get amazing views, one of the most amazing hikes I've been on definitely planning on going back soon!

This trail was a great workout. It's a fire road for the 4.2 miles to the tower. Lots of burn scars from the recent fires but the views were amazing and lots of wild flowers. We will be back again.

Nice hike

This hike was awesome! Definitely try to go on a clear day and bring a hat.

Great hike easy hike. Lots of interesting geology and wildflowers when I went in late April. If starting at the trail head, I would only attempt with a high clearance vehicle. The road leading to the trail head is very rough.

Went hiking on this trail on the Monday morning (4/23/18). Weather was pleasant, warm but a nice breeze. The first part of the trail is shaded and cool. The first mile in you arrive at the memorial for Robert Louis Stevenson. Then you keep moving up hill until you reach a wide open fire road with limited shade. You are on this road for the rest of the hike. Make sure to wear sunscreen, hats or both. Bring lots of water and snacks to keep your energy up. The trail is lined with burnt trees from the wild fires, but you see the beauty of the new growth from the ashes.

a tough Trail! definitely where the right attire, drink plenty of water and where a hat for this hike. too many people that I saw were just wearing jeans and regular dress shoes with no hat or little water you can see it in their faces.the ones that weren't prepared and those that were. worth the body aching at the end of the day!

Great hike; Halfway through the hike someone had placed a really cool labyrinth made out of the local rocks. The hike up to that point is fairly easy; after that it gets a little steep ( not bad going down but challenging on the way back). It was fun though; almost like a mini canyon scramble.

This trail is stunning - both the views and the variety of terrain you’ll encounter: many exposed roots and rocks of all types (small, large, jagged, smooth, loose and secure). This was definitely “difficult” with several sections not runnable. I was not feeling well and had to hike/walk more than I planned and didn’t complete the entire Out and Back. There are sections where I had to scramble through larger rocks and downed trees, which made it easy to go off course if you’re not paying attention (like me). Fortunately I had just purchased the PRO version and had downloaded the map so I was able to bushwhack and find another switchback of the trail.

A little muddy in spots due to melting snow, and very little shade, and absolutely beautiful.

What an awesome view on top!!! I was confused on what side to start on... coming from Napa I went left side of road. Not totally sure now if this was table rock. I think it’s on the right side, lol. Anyway... so pretty at the top. Started with a ton of switch backs to a road then from the road you get to the top. Gorgeous! Even though trees are burnt the beauty is still there. On the way down I was looking for the sign back to the switch backs and I got lost. I had to track back along the road which was not the safest but it was better then back tracking 30min and another hour down. Anyway, totally worth it just the sign needs to be more in view to get back down on the trail not the road.

Lots of ups and downs with absolutely amazing views. You’ll earn them with the elevation gains and losses. The terrain is varied and keeps it interesting. Can be chilly with the wind so bring a windbreaker if it might be cool. Hiking poles really helped.

One of my favorite hikes of all time but it does require you to pay close attention to where you place your feet and your poles if you use them. From Table Rock TH down to Oathill Mine TH, the elevation change is not that great, maybe 500 ft all in all. But the terrain is "busy". An unrelenting rock and boulder party there to trip you up at every step. Some scrambling but nothing technical. The views are spectacular and because many people dislike the terrain, it's rarely busy.

Stunning views with varying landscape.

I loved this trail. I would rate this closer to hard. The views were amazing. And the challenge was perfect. I can’t wait to do it again. If you’re going to do it, do to the end. Climb the rock and enjoy those views.

I would say this trail is about 50/50 in the shade and sun which is nice during cooler days, but would be a bit uncomfortable in the summer. The views however are amazing. At about 2.5 mile, you start to see really incredible views of the vineyards and grasslands with the best view at the end of the trail. The trail is rocky for most parts and there's a steady incline the entire way. I would rate it about easy-moderate. Easy if you regularly hike, but a little of a challenge if you're just getting into hiking. The trail also has 1 mile markers along the way which is helpful to know how far you've gone.

The drive to/from here is so beautiful! We got to the trailhead around noon on a Saturday and there were still a few parking spots left.

My bf & I stopped about halfway in to have lunch on the giant boulders and WOW, what an amazing view! The labyrinth area was pretty cool too. The next mile though after the rock mazes wasn't as easy as the first. When you reach the top of Table Rock, you essentially get the same views as you did with that first stop on the giant boulders. So if you want to take it easy, stop by the first boulders, check out the labyrinth below, and then turn around. But if you are willing and able, definitely hike the whole thing! Just be careful at the top - it is super windy up there!

This is one of the cleanest trails I've seen in terms of trash and dog poop (great job people!). There's lots of shade and it wasn't too busy when I went on a Saturday afternoon. It took us about 2 1/2 hours to complete (with lunch and picture breaks included) so it wasn't too bad. The trail however is very rocky and not suitable for young children or for those with injuries.

This page needs to be updated: the trail has been open for several weeks
Amazing views with lots of switchbacks and sun. I was disappointed that I couldn’t see Clear Lake from the top (Cobb was blocking the view) but could see very far in every direction. The trail is actually mostly a fire road that passes through a lot burned trees from the Tubbs Fire

Bring lots of water and a hat, there is very little coverage.

Absolutely loved this hike, even though the uphill was a little rough on the way back. Definitely wear good shoes/boots because it's pretty rocky. The views are amazing from the overlook and there's a spot on the trail where it was clear enough to see Mt. Shasta on the horizon!

Gorgeous scenic and fun trail. Love to come back some other time with friends. Alot of burned trees affected from the recent wildfire. Glad I brought my kuksa for a cup of coffee. Enjoyed the sunset but didnt stay too long. I have to run down quick before it gets dark. It stated 9.6 miles but I only took 8miles with steep short cut back down hill.

Fun short but strenuous hike through woods and volcanic rock formations with fabulous views. The first mile is moderate with a few rocky spots, the second mile is very rocky and parts are steep. A few muddy/slippery spots in January a week after rains but nothing you can’t handle. The views down Napa Valley from Table Rock are worth the effort. If you want to take it easy you can turn around after about a mile at the cairn and rock labyrinth formations which are a fun surprise.

A lot harder than I thought it’d be but amazing nonetheless!

I love this entire area! This entrance is my favorite. This trail can be accomplished as an out and back in two - 3 directions or a long loop going to Table Rock which would be considered a hard hike. Fabulous stone features, the area escaped the fires. We hiked an out then North and back (5mi total) prior to new year's.

This is the best hike I’ve been on in a long time. It’s true hiking trails. No paved roads. You have to pass over streams and climb down rocks and exposed tree roots. It is a tough hike with beautiful views.

There are some stellar views on this trail, but for over half of the hike the soundscape is dominated by the traffic and loud motorcycles cruising the highway below. In addition, most of the trail is a dirt road. I'm glad I did it, but I wouldn't be in a hurry to do it again. Good workout though.

More difficult than expected but the short distance makes it very manageable. Loved the variation in landscape and the astounding views!

was a quick moderate hike. 2.2 miles each way, with good signage along the route. Some portions are very rocky and steep.

Loved every minute

It's a good workout, though short, but harder than expected, more than half of the way is rocky, and some part is steep. The view seen on the Table Rock is fantastic.
