crowded at first, but once you get through the first part of the trail it not as bad. very beautiful, do CCW. Seems to be much easier going down the muddy steep incline. First half is going around the rock cliffs, second half is ridge walking on the table part and then ends with the steep muddy incline where you see people going up and down. lots of bugs and cattle

Absolutely stunning views! I’d definitely recommend going on a clear day. The trail gets very muddy/slippery with a little rain and we were unable to see the Table when the clouds rolled in.
It gets pretty steep in some parts, but still manageable for even the inexperienced hikers like myself!

Amazing hike...best to go CCW, so follow the path along the ridge to the right once on the main trail....do not go directly up the mountain. Word of warning, it gets very windy here and wet on the trail, so good footwear is recommended along with a light wind breaker.

Amazing. This is very challenging, but doable with children. Did with wife and 9 & 12 year olds on a sunny calm day. Would hate to try in rain. Once at top head to rock formation (7-8 minute walk) for 360 panoramic view.

A steep climb leads to spectacular views in all directions. This place is famous for good reason.

It’s a steep and wet climb up to the ridge, but views are spectacular. We saw a beautiful golden eagle close up “thermaling” round us off the escarpment for ages, as well as plenty other raptors. If you have time, look for the climb up to the Table on the return. We an out of time and will go back just for that today.
