You can't beat the views on the top of Table Rock.
Visited this past weekend, the road to Table Rock was a one lane gravel road which took almost 40 minutes (10.5 miles) to drive and was fairly bumpy. We had to walk to the parking lot (they're closed January - April 1st), which was much harder than the actual hike. The trail is pretty short so if you start from the parking lot so don't expect a long day unless you spend a long time exploring the different parts of the trail you can go to (there are some small deviations you can take to get other views i.e. of the Linville Gorge).

We completed this trail with our 4 year old. It was tough coming up, but worth it.

Actually pretty easy. We went before the gates opened so had to hike 2 miles up to the parking lot. Love the view at the top.

it's not 14.5 miles. absolutely gorgeous views. I hiked with 2 dogs on a Monday and only passed 3 other people. It was chilly but worth it. It's rocky tread so coming down be careful of skidding.

Awesome trail with breathtaking views. First mile or so is a steady incline with views the whole way.

Hike from short off to hawksbill for the best hike in North Carolina!

dogs loved it

Great views from the top. Took the dogs up without much of a problem. The long trek out to this hike was well worth it
