In Giant city State Park is the Devil's Standtable Trail. From the paved parking lot cross the road and you'll be at this giant rock pinnacle in minutes. The best view is from behind the large wooden sign in the woods where you can stand beside the cliff for an unobstructed view/photo.

This hike was sweet. It doesn’t go in a loop unless i couldn’t see the trail properly. We went a little off trail to hang out on the rocks.

Easy hike and so beautiful!! The rock formations are beautiful. Try to catch it after a good rain for some pretty waterfalls. Loved this!

Trail isn't clear about where you are and aren't supposed to go. We realized after a moment that we needed to go behind the large sign. However we then followed the trail behind that sign, which as it turns out, is the wrong way to go.

Still really beautiful, and the stuff we saw by going the wrong way was actually pretty cool too.

If you stick to the trail it's not that great but if you go off trail then it's a pretty good hike.
