This was a very confusing yet beautiful hike the flowers were so pretty but the trail
Was not marked or maintained at all we just kinda keep going with what we thought was a trail until we came across the waterfall

Beautiful hike. Would recommend taking the left fork going in and the opposite side of the loop out for an easier route. Bring lots of bug spray for yourself and your dogs. There's a good amount of shade throughout the hike.

Right on! This is my favorite so far.

Poor trail markers but excellent hike.

The geology is stunning once you reach the canyon! Wildflowers are at the tail of their bloom and Phantom Falls doesn't have much flow, but still beautiful and worth the hike. The trail is not well marked though and ran into many people trying to find their way to Phantom falls.

Love this hike gorgeous gorgeous waterfall worth the hike in. Lots of mosquitos today glad we took repellant. Always lots of friendly families with kids and dogs. This is a great family hike.

Love this hike. The view is great, we went in January. I recommend the extended hike pass the overlook to get to the top of the waterfall. There were a few downed trees that we had to go over or under, along the path. I’ve done the lower trail back and forth as well as the upper trail back and forth. Lower has more streams and shade. Upper has a nice small waterfall.. we did not run into any bugs during January but I have heard that gnats can be a issue during later months as well as mosquitoes.

Very beautiful. We did this hike on 4/13/2018, Parking lot to Hollow falls, then across to Ravine falls, then Phantom falls then down to the pools about 1/2 mile past phantom in Flag Canyon.
The flowers were out in full bloom and it was beautiful. I returned to view again on 4/19/2018.

great hike, awesome waterfall.

Great trail hike the views are worth the hike. start to the trail on the left all down hill great photo ops, and on the way out go left nice easy gradual hike back out.

The whole place was a muddy over hyped cow pasture.

Solid. You can make it tomorrow steep or easy and either way you see the falls and the top of the river.

Wildflowers galore and many wispy waterfalls along this easy hike. On weekends in the spring, it is crowded. The sheer quantity of flowers is worth it though.

Beautiful place to hike and see Gods creation. about 8 miles of trail. easier and longer by 1/2 mile way to go on the right but shorter and steeper on the way is on the left. recomend this hike if you will be in that area of Oroville.

The trail is absolutely gorgeous. Lot's of green area, many watefalls that are stunning.

loved our adventure on Sunday

Beautiful wildflowers blooming this time of the year (April). A friend suggested to stay on the right side instead of the trail, which was horribly mark. We still manage to get lost and found the waterfalls. However, we still didn’t see phantom falls but saw 3 waterfalls... But overall, it was a great time. We were able to enjoy the waterfall and have a picnic. I would suggest sunscreen, a hat and shoes that can get muddy!

Great wildflowers. Crazy crowds.

The worst part was having to climb around barbed wire rift next to a cliff. Other than that it was a nice, easy, beautiful hike. There are cows and patties, and there isn’t really a trail to follow, but the whole preserve is beautiful. We found all the waterfalls and had a picnic.

This hike is absolutely amazing. It is pretty difficult though. I’m 20 and I’m pretty good shape and it had me and both my friends sweating. The whole loop is gorgeous. Tons of wildlife like the California newt, banana slugs, and all the lizards you could want to see. On my second visit did run into a couple tiny Alameda striped Racer snakes. It’s an amazing hike for all ages but it is definitely a workout. 100% is a must do while you are in the area. I try and go at least once a week because it is just so beautiful.

Love love love Table Mountain. I have hiked here a handful of times now and have enjoyed each different path I’ve taken. In April it is GORGEOUS with all the wild flowers in bloom. Definitely bring sunscreen as there is not much covering (depending which way you go) and do your research as to which trail you want to follow depending what you want to see.

I’ve always wanted to check this one off my list and finally got around to it. We arrived here at 10 AM on a Tuesday morning. It wasn’t very packed. By the time we were leaving around 2 the whole parking lot was filled. We were unsure of where to begin considering that there are no trail markers but we just used common sense. If you follow the water, it will lead to more water. There were 3 waterfalls that we saw total. They all had a pretty good flow. The flowers are definitely blooming and made the hike 10x prettier. It was one of the easiest hikes I have ever done. There are a few challenges but nothing major. I would definitely recommend to go here during the Spring because there isn’t any shade.

Be careful! Poison Oak on this trail!

Great hike with amazing scenery. The waterfall is worth the distance. It was pretty tough taking the lower trail to get back as it is mostly uphill.

it was a long hike but worth it at the end

Amazing waterfall. Easy to navigate. Takes a long time to achieve the waterfall, but it's worth it!

Nice quick hike.
The view at the end is awesome!

My cousins and I decided to do this hike today as we had never done it. I saw the falls in a few friends’ Instagram posts so we rallied to do it. My sister brought her 2.5 year old with us. We started along the trail and realized the wagon wasn’t gonna make it so we stashed it behind a tree and trekked on.

The “trail” faded after about a mile. Needless to say, we definitely got lost. Luckily I had the app to guide us along where a trail used to be (there wasn’t a trail). My phone died but we finally made our way back and ultimately did the entire 4+ mike hike.

We never found the waterfall.
