Hiking

We got to this trail through black water falls state park.. the trail was very rocky and you DEFINITELY need a lifted vehicle!! I have a Jeep Wrangler that was perfect for this trip. After the trail is done you come out to a gravel road- we parked right by the sign and walked to the trail which was a pretty decent hike, was super muddy in some spots and you definitely will need waterproof hiking boots. The view was incredible and there wasn’t any other people around which is rare. I loved this trail. I’m not sure if this is a trail for beginners especially if you aren’t used to driving off-road.

Planned on hiking this trail today but like others had mentioned recently, the road was closed shortly after turning on Route 244.

Easy to moderate trail. We drove in from Rt 32 (10 miles to the trail head) and it was a pretty drive although the road gets pretty narrow and washed out in spots. The trail is mostly easy and well-maintained but does have some rocky and muddy places the closer you get to the overlook. If you’re taking kids, hang onto them! Huge drop-offs and very wide and deep crevices! Beautiful view from the rocks!

My friend and I tried to hike this the other day but the road up to the trail head was closed (and seemed to be closed for awhile). So we decided to hike up the gravel road (about 5.4 miles) but Table Rock was not at the top. Not sure why this trail was so confusing to get to, but we weren’t able to hike it.

The first gps map took us an HOUR out the wrong way, never will use google maps again! Then we used a different app and got there shortly. Be careful with the maps! The trail to get to table rock was flooded with rushing water and was washed out- so unfortunately we couldn’t cross. We did decide to walk to lindy point overlook instead and it was pretty awesome! We plan to visit again with a better vehicle as it looks like a fun place to do a little off roading. I did like this place more then Coopers rock.

The trail was a bit muddy in areas, but not too bad. I could see it being muddier after a recent rain or in the winter. It took us about 1 hour out and back with two dogs and including time spent at the overlook. The views are great!

great rock with view. muddy. camped near summit, awesome sunrise view. in and out cell signal, didnt work for me (AT&T) worked some on Canaan Loop road. Take the south loop to get here, the North part is nearly impassable even with 4x4. some are commenting this should be rated harder then "easy". sure its rocky and muddy, but its sub 2.5 miles almost no elevation gain (150ft.). if your are afraid to get wet then sure it's "hard". NO MOUNTAIN BIKING, trust me i tried.

Great hike but with the mud and rocks would rate this more difficult. Beautiful view on the rocks!!

My girlfriend likes to come out here and scare me by hanging out on the edge lol. Great views though! I have never had any issues hiking here. The hike has always been pretty easy. I dislike the drive out though in a non 4WD vehicle with not a lot of clearance. It's probably been mentioned that the north part of the loop road coming to the trail head can only be done by vehicles capable of hard terrain. Regular vehicles have to enter from the intersection in the Canaan Heights area.

I would definitely rate this a more moderately leaning "easy" hike when dry. Knowing where and how to place your feet and having the proper footwear is critical. We did majority of the hike with kids Saturday and had to turn back. That was .... Not fun. Today we returned without kids and completed it. Very peaceful and beautiful views. If you don't mind being dirty I definitely recommend. Also, watch for snakes. Pretty big rattlesnake sunning himself on table Rock this am.

We took Canaan Loop Road as others suggested and it was a pleasant drive out on the gravel road. This trail isn’t too difficult - although I would rate it moderate rather than easy. The first 0.8 miles or so was nice with simple walking. But the end of the trail was very muddy that had to be carefully navigated and had a couple fallen trees that had to be climbed over. The view was spectacular though, so I’d definitely recommend it. The trail is lightly trafficked as stated - we didn’t see a single soul on the trail, walking on the Saturday morning of Memorial Day weekend. Also dog friendly, we took our GSD mix and he had no problems with the hike.

First let me say this trail is not suitable for all ages or skill level! My husband and I took my 4 year old daughter, and she was unable to walk a good portion of the trail, because of the deep swampy mud. My husband had to carry her. The trail is littered with boulders, which caused her to fall several times. She had some bruising and swelling on her leg from the fall. The trail is also not very well maintained. We had to climb over two trees that fell down blocking the trail. There was not a way around them and they were at least 2.5 feet off the ground. With all this said the view is beyond amazing at the look out. The trail also was pretty. The drive in on the long gravel road was very beautiful!
