Did this trail in reverse last Sunday by taking the rain rock scrambles of Bonticou Crag first and following the yellow trail to Table Rocks afterwards. Weather was overcast with clouds but the temperature and humidity was perfect for hiking. Watch your footing on the way up of Bonticou, the most technically challenging part is where you need to be able to get good footing wedging yourself up. Very similar to the Lemon Squeeze a few miles away! We took some detours so all in all it was 7 Miles in 3 hours with a 30 minute break.

Glorious views from the top of the crag. The rock scramble wasn’t bad except for one place where the rocks are very high; took me awhile to find a foothold/handhold there. The trail up the rock scramble is very well marked.

Not too strenuous, but amazing views. Not quite as good as the lemon squeezer, but fantastic nonetheless
