Good hike! Took a friend, 2 large dogs, and myself a couple hours after a few stops for water. Wish there was a better outlook or view of open space but still gorgeous. Would definitely hike again.

this is a tough loop. lots of elevation gains. but there is a huge sense of accomplishment after doing this hike.

nice, better to go first to TR and then do the ridge... so you can avoid all the people

Hiked this along with Pinnacle Mountain and Table Rock trails yesterday. Due to fire damage, the Ridge trail (connects from Pinnacle Mountain summit to around halfway up the Table Rock Trail) is fairly hard to follow without trail markers, but luckily this trail is regularly remarked with bright orange blazes. To my knowledge the trail was just reopened two days ago and while it is obvious it has not been travelled in a few months, it is in great shape. The trail path isn't the most obvious at times but the orange blazes are easy to see so you won't get lost. This is one of my favorites because it allows me to quickly hit both summits in one day. Doing all three trails comes to a distance around 11 miles (not positive about the exact distance).

The Ridge Trail is an orange-blazed connector from the top of Pinnacle Mountain to the Table Rock Trail. The three trails make a great loop. We descended this trail from Pinnacle to Table Rock on a great hiking day. The trail itself is not much, as there are no views other than pretty dense forest, but it serves its purpose.

Hard hike but so worth it! Views were beautiful as was the trail.

Table Rock was harder than anticipated, but gave great views once we reached the top. There were numerous park employees around on the trail with water the day we hiked (it was extremely hot the day we went).
