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.

Very lovely trail, very secluded. Incredible geology if you're into basaltic columns. Had to turn around after mile 3 due to snow on trail, but still enjoyed what we saw.

We actually weren’t able to hike the whole trail because of the snow. We couldn’t make it up to the trailhead in my Honda Civic, so we parked and hiked up. You’ll definitely need snow gear for your car and yourself!

First time summit. Bit of snow towards the top but made for a gorgeous view.

Very special place. It's one that we've been talking about doing for a long time but I guess it was so close we always put it off. Move it to the top of your list of hikes within an hour of Portland.

Can’t really talk about the view since I was in a cloud the whole hike but i will say i don’t think this hike is very safe for children due to the rock slides. Overall a Moderate hike not to bad

Great hike! Go on a clear day and you’ll get amazing views from the top. It took me about 1.5 hours to get to the summit. When driving there you’ll see that the directions on All Trails is a little off, but once you get close there are signs that direct you toward the trailhead.

We love this hike. I would recommend going early in the day on weekends. The views from the top are magnificent.

fun 8 mile hike with gorgeous views at the top. definitely take the time to climb up the first rocky outcropping before the boulder field for a preview of the views to come! the boulder field looks daunting but the trail is fairly clear once you get going.

Definitely longer than 7 mile. This hike is a bit over 8 miles. Also when you are on the trail and encounter the first rock slide, don’t deviate left and up as you will be going the wrong way. Stay right and you will be fine.

First, the map is wrong but the road to the trail head is clearly marked so just follow the signs!!
This is an amazing hike! Leaves are starting to turn and there are fantastic colors. A definite must!!

much easier than we anticipated and the landslide field was easier to navigate than other reviewers suggested. we had our 10-month-old and he was super content, too! great hike to do in about 3.5-4 hours. we’ll definitely be back!

Make sure you follow signs for trailhead and not GPS. You’ll lose 4 miles if you don’t.

It’s a little on the tough side with boulder fields to scramble across and narrow over grown trails in sections.
The view at the top though, worth every step!

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.
