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.

Oh my gosh, this is amazing :) Definitely something to plan for though, good shoes, plan on getting dirty and tired. It's June and we hiked through a little mud and a big chunk of snow. I would say it's a little harder then a moderate hike. It's pretty up hill at some points, but when you get there it's so worth it! I can't wait to go again! More exploring next time!

Road signs up to trailhead are missing their white arrows at junctions, so look carefully.
Trail starts out clear, but 1/2 mile in you start to encounter snow up to a few feet deep. After following the old road for a little over a mile, you'll cross a large stream, trail starts in the forest to the right just past this around the curve (easy to miss). Trail is not marked (saw a few pink ribbons/cut trunks) and is still covered in snow (gps and map help). We left cairns where we could, but turned back after a few miles as snowshoes were needed higher up. New vault toilet at trailhead has yet to be installed/unlocked.

Amazing views today! About 2 hours up and 1.5 down. Perfect weather and great access on road in as well. Will be back for sure.

This is a fantastic hike! I've done it several times, but actually camped on top for the first time on 08/23/2016 and that was pretty incredible. The sunset and sunrise were amazing and the stars were incredible. I would highly recommend this trail anytime. On a clear day you can see Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Rainer, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, and the Three Sisters.
