Nice trail, but disappointing views from top. Went pass peak to get on the sunny side of mountain with some better views . Steady uphill , but gradually and not too hard. Figure about 5 hours RT including break.

There was about 2” of snow on the ground but not too slippery. The hike to Lone was fantastic and even coming down from Rocky wasn’t bad. But the trek between the two peaks was hard. Had to walk across two trees to get from one side of the creek to the other but that was fun.

Went on a rainy mid fall day, rather cold and challenging conditions. The trail was still practical. Rather fast with only a couple technical sections. Snowing on top! Happy to experience the first snow of the season. Very windy ion exposed areas!

So whoever posted the original route, I would not head up Rocky Mountain on the ridge line as suggested. Notice how the route is a straight line. Actual hiking, especially bushwhacking, is not in straight lines. You should head up rocky on the next ridge line, pass the stream junction and then make a right, because going up the ridge on the map above takes you through THICK pines. It was the thickest bushwhack we had ever done, and we had a 2 time 35er and 46er with us. All of us are covered in scrapes and scratches from the pines. There are also big scrambles that were covered in the thick slippery moss which made it a little tricky. The 35er with us said he had gone up Rocky on the next ridgeline over which had a nice herd path. After rocky and Lone, there is a nice herd path to follow to Peekamoose and then trail to Peekamoose summit and back out over Table to car. I clocked 15 miles, not 11.5 as the description above says. Luckily the river wasn’t flooded so the hike in was beautiful. Just be prepared for a long day. Have fun!

Water crossings were rough. Very hard to cross right now. It was low 30’s on both summits. One giant bushwhacking nightmare.

I couldn’t go all the way to Peekamoose, because I had a light knee injury, but Table Mountain was very beautiful. Went on a sunny weekday in October and didn’t see a soul besides me. Serenely quiet (except for my bear bell). I found it between moderate and hard. Some very spectacular viewpoints on the way. Overall very much recommended!

You gain altitude pretty quickly then it levels out. There is a good trail most of the way to Big Indian. The herd path can be followed pretty easily. BI to Fir was an another story. Paths showing up and then disappearing just as quick. Bushed wracked down. Long day.

Rigorous, shaded hike. Long stretches of graded easy to moderate interspersed with serious steep moments including some tough rock parts. Great lookouts across the land

Crummy bushwack for the first half; meh trail for the second half. Only did it for the 3500.

This review is for the hike to Peekamoose high point from the Peekamoose Road trail head. Weather was perfect for a Sunday afternoon hike, partly cloudy and cool with a nice breeze. The trail was bone dry with no bugs to speak of. The trail is wide and well defined with a very moderate incline until the last mile or so where it gets a bit steeper, but nothing too crazy. Lots of cool rock formations and some easy rock scrambles along the way. This hike was pretty fun. Nice views from the lookout. Saw lots of fresh bear scat on the trail. There's a spring right on the trail about halfway up, but it was dry and not running today. Stats from my AllTrails recording: 7.7 miles, 2608 ft of elevation gain, total time of hike 4.75 hours.

Great hike. Trail is well marked from start to finish. The col between Table and Peekamoose is a relatively easy walk; would definitely recommend getting to Peekamoose for the views.
