It's a tough one, basically straight up then down. Still beautiful scenery all around and an amazing view from the top.

This is a good hike. Definitely a steep one. Unfortunately it was smokey when we were up there so the view wasn’t as good as I’m sure it is.

Pretty great hike! Not a ton to look at on the way up but the climb was definitely worth it! The view at the top was awesome!

Definitely a toughie for us less experienced individuals, but our 9 year old managed it, we just slowed down on the more challenging parts - like where we ran into lots of scree. Lots of dogs on this one when we climbed. Very popular so expect lots of people.

Definitely a challenging hike, constant climb with some fairly steep sections, I really enjoyed the changes in terrain and the scenery is great, most people seem to only go to the start of the plateau, but if you continue to the right to the far peak the views get better, and the trail is easy going now until the end. The trail is well marked up to the plateau but a little hard to follow beyond especially when you need to find your way through the trees, but definitely worth going the extra distance. You have not truly completed Table Mountain until you reach the survey marker at the peak.

Definitely would recommend planning a trip on a day that is less windy, lots of steep areas, beautiful view

Rocky trail and very uphill. Not a super long hike but definitely not an easy one. The view at the top is well worth it tho. Take plenty of water and snacks. It gets hot when you leave the tree line

Good uphill climb most of the way but the view is spectacular and worth the climb.
About 2hrs to the plateau and another 45ins.to the top of Table Mountain.
Trail is well marked but get there early as it gets busy after10:00.
Take plenty of water and that INCLUDES water for your dog.

Beautiful hike. Lots of wildflowers on the way up. A bit windy at the top. Well worth the effort.

Fantastic hike! Fairly steep towards the end but the view is entirely worth it. The trail could be marked better so allow yourself extra time to find it.

Fantastic hike! Definitely was a challenge of my fitness but SO worth it when you get to the top!!!
The views as you go up are mesmerizing, and the panoramic view at the top is just breath taking.
We took our dog with us, which made it a bit tricky, as he’s still a pup and tends to pull on the leash, which is a bit scary as you’re trying to climb up or down the trails.
The trails are primarily gravel and rock. Some spots are quite steep. The trails are quite narrow, people hike with dogs, so please keep your dogs on a leash the entire time! Even if they are well behaved.

The only criticism I have is I wish the trail was better marked. There were a few spots that we were not sure where go to. Thankfully we ran into people on the trail that knew where they were going, so we followed them for a bit.

Went into this trail not knowing what to expect, until we topped out on a huge cliff overlooking beaver mines Lake. Easily one of the best views I've ever experienced. Follow the orange circles for the best way up and don't get lured in to going up the scrambles at the end. Great view of castle mountain to the south as well!

Really well marked trail all the way to the top! Made it up in an hour and 30 minutes. Great views through out and excellent at the top!

We took the alternate route up (turned left rather than right at the first major view point) and found that the top third of the hike was pretty challenging on steep scree. That being said, the route up to the scree was beautiful and the views at the top are absolutely stunning. We added the 2kms over to the true summit to the east and felt it was definitely worthwhile as the views continue to be impressive. We did cross some deep snow in that section but following others footsteps we didn’t need spikes. Found four ticks on us after the hike!

We were a little in over our heads when we did this hike. We didn't know what to expect, and definitely felt like we bit off more than we could chew. But the views at the top made it all worth it.

Had an awesome time doing this one yesterday (April 23, 2017) Mostly a hike up with 1 really fun but optional scrambling portion. The views here are unreal and the rock has some really unique colours. The snow was a bit deep down low In the trees but manageable without spikes. Be aware we also saw a few ticks!

This hike starts inside the Beaver Mines Lake Provincial Recreation Area. The trail head is well marked and there are signs indicating there is bear activity in the area. The trail itself has 765 meters of elevation to reach the peak. The trail has a number of steep narrow parts which traverse a lot of skree and rocky terrain. The trail markers can be misleading as a number of informal paths appear to be marked as well so you can get turned around a fair bit, but finding the main trail again isn't difficult. The views from the top are spectacular and make the trek work while. From the mountain top to the East of the main peak you can see clear towards Lethbridge. The trail has a lot of sun exposure so be prepared to have a lot of water and deal with direct sun exposure the entire trip.
