Great leisurely hike. Wide path, not super steep. The trail was fairly populated - hikers, dogs, bikers. Pretty family friendly. Will return!

Wonderful hike! Weather was perfect.

So, I may be unhappy because the view was foggy up top. I was immediately confused about where the trail ( remained) after about 3 miles up, and couldn't find a decent view. I could've easily mistaken the trail since it was my first time.

Went up defiance, came down starvation. Took about 7.5 hours with lots of stops. Starvation was much steeper than defiance-coming down was extremely difficult! Actually, painful. Pretty technical in some spots. Next time I'll go up defiance and come down defiance, starvation trail=no thanks.
Amazing views at the top, we could see St. Helens, rainier, Adams and hood from various points. This is a probably one of the hardest hikes in the gorge(for me) and I've done a lot of them! Much harder than dog mountain so don't even compare :)

took us 12 hours to walk the 10.9 miles. made it to the top!! very smokey today.

Awesome hike- was definitely an 11 mile hike like the map suggests not 8 miles like this app. Plan for an all day trip, take lots water (my husband and I each has a camel pack plus a small water bottle each and we drank it) take snacks and lunch too! We did not have any bugs :) way up was a steep incline especially towards the top. Lots of loose rock! The end was totally worth it! On the way down the loose gravel made it seem harder than it probably is. We also lost the trail for a bit, but headed east like the map suggests. I suggest wearing shoes that have good traction- the way down was harder because of my shoes. Well worth the day trip!

Great little ride.

Decent hike that took the better part of a day. Sadly, the views from the lookout and surrounding trails were severely limited by wild fires.

Awesome morning hike, suitable for children, near Medford. Of the two table rock hikes, I prefer lower as the trail seems to afford more shade than upper table rock trail.

Nice kid-friendly hike to both Mill Creek Falls and Avenue of Boulders.

Nice morning hike, close to town and suitable for children. Beautiful Rogue Valley views and interesting vernal pools at the top. However, of the two table rock hikes, I prefer the lower table rock trail, as it seems to be more protected from the sun.

Most of the trail were closed during our visit last year. The places that were opened were very messy with goose droppings. Shorter trail sections near visitor center were nice.

I suggest not going on the weekend and make sure you have a 4x4 vehicle. Beautiful falls and worth the adventure but be prepared. The hike is very steep in sections but ok if you take your time.
