The unmarked route to the top and back down is fantastic and gruelling. If you're an inexperienced adventurer there are guided hikes to the top offered that you can pay for. Such a unique landscape, and almost disturbingly quiet in a park otherwise teeming with life.

This isn’t a review so much of this trail (which is still quite worth it) as it is of the unmarked trail that goes up to the bowl and then the rim. You can pick up a map for this route at the visitor center. It’s a great hike with really unique terrain and terrific views. Easily our favorite hike of our visit. Lots of scree and and it’s easy to get lost higher up near rim. People have made some cairns near the rim but there are so many of them I wouldn’t trust them too much to help guide your way back. Also if it got foggy you could get lost pretty easily as everything looks the same once you get up high enough.

We did this trail yesterday for the first time. An easy trail of packed and loose crushed rock, hiking shoes would be a good idea (always). The views and landscape are unique, as others have mentioned itstkind of like walking on Mars, with all the red rocks and barren landscape. The view at the end is worrh the hike and as a bonus there is a nice waterfall by the end as well. A good hike for all ages, just keep in mind you are in full sun the whole hike.

Not so much a hike as more a 30 min walk to see truly amazing geology. Unless you hike into the bowl area then more demanding

The Tablelands are an UNESCO world heritage site. It is a beautiful and unique place! Hikers are permitted to adventure off the main trail and navigate their own trail up or around the mountains using a park provided map of the area. I highly recommend this option for experienced hikers only. As the top of the Tablelands is 719m and the terrain is mostly loose rock. But the ascent to the top of the Tablelands is completely worth the work!
