Table Rock is at 4881 feet and offers some incredible views of the Cascades. The first 1.5 miles of the hike are on an old logging road. You will come to a landslide that wiped out part of the road, just work your way around it up through the trees and then work your way back down to the road. Go about another mile and keep your eyes open for the old trail on your right, its usually marked with rock piles. Once you are on this trail your next turn will be at the saddle, you can turn left to go to Table Rock or right to go out to Rooster rock. The trails are marked occasionally with ribbon and even some old blazes on the trees to help find the way if the snow covers the trail.

Easy to find and mostly well kept trail. Picking through the rock slide was difficult as the trail there wasn’t well marked. Beautiful view and not busy on a Sunday morning! Sure I’ll be hiking it again

Beautiful hike. Follow the signs to the trailhead - GPS was incorrect. The roads to the trail were well maintained.

My daughters and I did our first sunset hike on this hike last night (7/21/18). Started the hike around 5:45pm and made it to the top just as the sun was starting to set. This was an amazing hike. Many different types of terrain to hike over. Challenging...Beauty all over to gaze at. Then we hiked back down in the dark with headlamps. This is one of the first times that this app was way off on mileage and we stayed on the trail (on the red line). My other app mapped it at 9.31miles round trip not 6.9.

Good all around stiff hike. A little nerve wracking hiking over the boulders under the headwall, but no casualties. From the view at the top,we realized you could see Mt Hood down past South Sister, that's half the state of Oregon from North to South. Clear-cutting below is a bit embarrassing. Oregon hikers are the best - courteous, friendly, and eager to share the narrow trail.

Great trail! Not very crowded. We went a couple weeks ago on a Sunday. Took my 7 year old and we were a little slow but he did great! A couple places it seemed a little hard to know which trail was the actual trail but we did just fine. I would recommend it for sure!

If you’re obsessed with mountains, go on this hike! You will get the most beautiful view of multiple peaks if you go on a blue sky day. My husband and I hiked with our toddler in a framed pack. It was a moderate hike, but some areas felt hard with a kiddo in tow. Bees were Everywhere, but the wildflowers were so pretty. We really enjoyed it!

Amazing view of Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Washington, and North, Middle, South Sister! Will be doing this hike again!

Beautiful hike with dramatic rock formations, sweeping boulder field, and massive views of wilderness punctuated by the sight of multiple peaks on a clear day. Note: this hike is difficult, especially when crossing the boulder field where the trail is tricky to keep track of and traction is limited. The last 5 miles of the road leading to the trailhead are gravel/dirt, albeit relatively well maintained, and narrow.

6-30-18 Got an early start today before the crazy busy Saturday rush, we were the first to the top and it was a clear day. Saw every peak but Rainer and Baker. I think this was number 19 trips up for me today and it never gets old.

beautiful view at the top- wildflowers all over- basalt collumns and an easy gentle incline. This hike seems to be less crowded than others

Good trail with a little of everything. Flat, steep, rocks, roots and lots of flowers. Supposed to have a good view from the top, but unfortunately it was cloudy and we had limited visibility.

Great views from the top. The trail is a bit out of the way so it’s not very crowded esp on weekdays. Arrived at the top at noon on a Tuesday and had it all to ourselves. One note- the directions to the trailhead via the directions button on this app failed about 10 miles out from the trailhead but the signage on the road was good.

Great view from the top! Trail up was okay, nothing too great but worth the trip up! My phone cut out so I didn’t get all the miles but about 7 miles round trip seems right.

As far as the snow goes it’s pretty much all melted! Beautiful views at the top and not very high trafficked with other hikers. Lots of trilliums along the hike and berry bushes are starting to flower. The rhododendrons aren’t in bloom quite yet.

Just did this trail today, there was still snow on the ground after the hot weather the past few days. The rock field was tricky - some areas had snow that went up to our hips. So you definitely have to be careful. It was a great, adventurous trip though.

There is still a bunch of snow if you are not in the trees. We called it at the rock field due to snow depth. It might be another month before it clears out.

I completed this hike on 1/6/18 with a couple of friends. The snow in the Rock field was the most challenging part as it was hard to navigate through the trail while sinking in almost a foot of snow in some cases. It is still doable with regular hiking boots if you're up to the challenge. Bring warm clothes; gloves would help. I'd recommend checking the weather before hand too and be cautious and aware of the risks of hiking through ice and snow.

Reaching the trail head was a little confusing on it's own. If it weren't for another user who mentioned following the Table Rock trail sign with the black arrow, we wouldn't have found it. Follow your GPS to the trail as normal but once a few miles away, keep an eye out for the sign mentioned before. Simply follow that main gravel road (there are two forks I believe but remain on the road going up) and you'll reach the top of the road where the hike is. we

Easy quick hike Sunday 12/17/17. No others at trailhead. Took about 2.5 hours to top taking our time and navigating ice. Light snow on old road in beginning, patches of ice and snow on trail up. Snow around 8 inches deep at top. Managed hike using Yaktraks, but boulder field was a bit of a scramble. Trail easy to follow.

Snow on the boulder field bring micro spikes or yak tracks - still passable ! Perfect 10 day today ! Definitely able to make it to the top with our two pups ! Watch out if you put in “ table rock trailhead “ in your GPS you will miss your turn but there is a sign with a hard to read black arrow that will guide you up the right road ! ( posted a picture above) Some snow on road but nothing crazy ! Do it this week if you can !

Beautiful but we didn’t make it to the top due to lack of time. There was snow but still hikeable at the moment. Can’t imagine it will last much longer without proper snow hiking gear.

Table Mountain itself is beautiful. The view of Mt Hood + the rest at the top is beautiful. Not beautiful? The recent clearcuts surrounding the wilderness. Still, the view is worth it & would maybe be one of the best in the PDX area imho if it weren't for the bald forests. If it's clear, Rainier, St. Helens, Adams, the Three Sisters, Hood & Mt Jeff are all visible - especially the last two. Super nice.

Probably snow now, but great in early summer for wildflowers. Plus, one of the cleanest trailhead bathroom facilities I've seen in my life. You could practically eat off the floors (but uh... don't).

Great views of the Cascades on a clear day. Was not a fan of the giant horse flies all over the trail and at the top.

Loved this trail. The views from the top could have been so much prettier had the air not been filled with smoke from all of the wildfires, but it was gorgeous nonetheless. The boulder field was fun...enjoyed the different aspects to this trail.
