Getting There

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.

There's an outhouse .1 miles from where you'll park.

From Highway 211 in Molalla, turn right on S Mathias Road. After .3 miles turn left on S Feyrer Park Road; drive 1.6 miles and turn right onto S Dickey Prairie Road. After 5.3 miles turn right on S Molalla Forest Road, crossing the Molalla River. Continue 12.8 miles and turn left up Middle Fork Road, a gravel road. Drive 2.6 miles and turn right, following signs for the next 4.5 miles to the trailhead. No fees or permits required.

HikingGreat!Rocky

What a hike! Great trail, it’s pretty rocky so just be careful, hike is uphill the whole way, but once you get to the top it’s so worth it. Had a great time up there with great people.

HikingGreat!

great trail for a hot day. mostly shaded. only a few steep parts just near the landslide rocks with some loose footing otherwise mostly moderate trail. beautiful views at the top - could see all the white tops from St Helens to Three Sisters. gravel road to the trailhead is a bit dusty but well packed, no pot holes, and easily navigable by a low clearance vehicle.

Incredible views of several volcanoes and other Peaks (OR and WA) from the top. Good for trail running mostly. Lots of flowers.

Arrived at 10am. There were quite a few people on the trail, some of them in masks. The trail itself was cool, mostly shaded and ends with a great view.

AMAZING. Trail is overall in great condition (the rockiest part has stacked rocked to guide you), and I’ve never experienced a cleaner trailhead bathroom in my life. Definitely gets pretty steep at points but man so so worth it! About 4 miles up and 4 miles down. We hiked in starting at about 8pm and made it up by about 9:45pm, woke up to the most beautiful sunrise on top with too many mountains to count. A couple camp sites with (we think) designated fire pits though we didn’t make any fires. Cannot recommend enough!!!

Hiking

This is an awesome hike for a day. It is rated as moderate, but I found it pretty challenging. There is a boulder field from the landslide about half way up. It was rough the way up, but figured out on the way back that it was easier if you traversed on top of the boulders instead of between them on the "trail". Lots of roots and rocks along the way, so you will be watching your steps most of the time. Make frequent stops to look around and enjoy the forest and the quiet around you. The view from the top is the big payoff. On a clear day you can see 8 mountains. We were pretty exhausted by the time we made it back to the car, but well worth it.

Great hike. Lots of flowers and good views at the top. We left early and only saw people on the way down, but there were a lot of them.

This hike was a challenge but really rewarding! Loved all the wildflowers and birds. Lots of rocky and steep areas. One part of the hike requires you to go across a really intense rock bed. Great view at the top.

Running

It was a nice run / hike up to the top with great views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson. Some of the areas were a little rugged and not easy to run on but overall it was worth the drive. Definitely try to plan to do this on a clear day when you will have the best views.

Beautiful hike, even when clouds hide much of the view at the top! I caught glimpses of Hood and Jefferson while I sat at the summit, but all the green hillsides below are still a great sight. When you reach what seems like a fork about halfway through (a little before the boulder field), the main trail goes straight but be sure to take a quick scramble up the rock face to the right for a great view of Jefferson. As others have said, follow the signs leading to the trailhead rather than following GPS. Once you hit the gravel road, the drive to the trailhead is 6.5 more miles, but the road isn’t too rough.

HikingGreat!MuddyRocky

I really liked the hike! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to enjoy the view due to the mist but I will be coming back. Parts of the trail are really muddy (hiked it on a rainy day) and one part is all rocks. Don't follow the GPS to where it takes you. Along the gravel road there will be signs that lead you to the trail so keep an eye out for them.

Fun and manageable for most skill levels. All Trails takes you to the park, and from there follow the signs to the trailhead. Go on a sunny day to see the view in its entirety.

Good hike. Great views. When you reach the boulder field, go across to the right.

Went about three weeks ago. There wasn’t much snow, but it poured rain. Even without seeing the view because of the rain it was so incredibly beautiful up there. The fog was absolute magic in the forests. The climb will likely make you sore the next day. Also when you get to what seems like the end, keep going a little farther along the top ridge. Highly recommend.
