The part of the trail that I took was at the Hayden Creek TrailHead which is just before you get the the camp site and 4x4 trail. The trail is going through some restoration as I got to the correct turning point, but the rest of the trail appeared to be washed out so I had to back track to where a new creek crossing was being put in.
This is mostly a vertical trail with only a few switchbacks. Once you get to the top of table mountain, it's fantastic.
You have some of the best views on the valley and Hayden's Pass Jeep trail as well.
Watch the decline because it is easy to run down.
