One of the best hikes I have done in recent memory. Incredible views, varied terrain, well maintained trail and pristine wilderness. The first part of the trail up table mountain is strenuous I would say, not moderate. But we loved that. The “back” portion of the loop is easier and so the whole trail could be out and back to make the ascent slightly less challenging.

Hiked with a 25 lb bag a medium sized dog and a pint sized hiking companion in March.

Fantastic hike with phenomenal views. The first mile is tough with steep inclines, but once past it’s a much easier trek. We went in January with pretty cold temps and some icy patchy. If your looking for a hike with some of the best 360 degree views with rough and unique terrain, then this is your hike!

Hiked it in early January. Really cool trail. We went on a Saturday and didn't run into anyone. Views are awesome throughout the hike. Highly recommended. The first 2 miles is the toughest stretch it's a pretty steep incline but anyone in good condition should be fine.
