Slightly taxing on leisure explorers yet had spectacular views once the overlook was reached. Narrow switchbacks with wide shoulders for photo opportunities or resting provided. Great for canine companions as well as children!
Note: Part of the guard rail damaged with other areas feeling loose.

Great hike, great views, saw people making the hike from older (70s) to young children. Great family hike. Awesome views.

Did this hike on December 30th which was perfect. There was not large crowds and you had time to relax at the top. Definitely would check it out.

Wouldn’t really consider this a hike, but more of a climb up the side of a monolith using stairs and a rough path. We did this climb during the eagle creek fire when the rest of the gorge wasn’t accessible. Even with the smoke the views are incredible. Worth the detour and climb up for sure.

This was definitely a hard hike but worth it. We did this one knowing we probably wouldn’t have a good view at the top but with over a foot of snow, it was still super fun to trek around the top! The 40mph winds were pretty sketch at times so we couldn’t take the scenic way.

A few things to note:
- Like others mentioned, we approached this trail head from the power line access down the road from the hot springs. Go the power line access until you hit a cross road - turn right and go down the hill. Once you see the hot springs buildings you should see the trailhead on the left.
- It’s not marked very well so we ended up being on the PCT most the time but you get to table mountain either way.
- Heartbreak is rough... but worth it! Especially with the snow right now! Just beautiful!
- We has two huge elk attempt to approach us on the trail which was frightening, no bears though!

I loved this little hike! The rewards were insane for the effort. It's all switch backs but the incline is actually pretty easy. The views were stunning. I went Dec 1 and it was a little cloudy with overcast but made for some stunning, moody pictures.

This hike I would rate as easy. But that’s also coming from someone who would rate Munra Point as only moderate. It’s short and provides an excellent view of the gorge.
I was finally able to see the damage of the Eagle Creek Fire on the Oregon side.
The winds at the top will blow you away along with the view!

Short and sweet with decent views of the Gorge and surrounding forests. I went with my kids and dog; never felt unsafe although at the top there is a rather large section of guard rail missing near the mounds of rocks. Just keep a close eye on little ones and dogs at the top!

A fun, quick hike

Great hike and nice views.

It is a drive to get there but it was worth it. Hornets nest 1/4 of the way in. I got stung a few times on the way out. Beautiful mountain forest. Rugged trail. The lake is amazing.

Definitely a difficult one. The hike to the mountain is pretty boring, but one of the quietest walks through a forest I've yet to experience, so that had it's on value in that. Very moderate hike until you reach the trail up to Table Mountain, then it gets steep very fast. Worth it though. I didn't have a great view of the Gorge that day but still enjoyed my experience at the top amongst the clouds.

This hike started at Trout Lake, Wa, PCT mile 2226, for a 66 mile - 6.5 day hike to White Pass, Wa from 9-3-17 to 9-9-17. Trout Lake temp forecasted for 101. We left early and missed most of the heat and while hot, had cool offshore breeze all day. Elevation gain steady all day. Arrived at camp at 5pm, mile 2238. All set up and done by 7:45. In tent at 7:45pm

Day 2, PCT Mile 2238-2251. up at 5 AM, breakfast pack up by 7:20 AM. Hotter than yesterday and very smokey from Cascade Locks Fire. Had to hike with buff over face to breath better. Crossed wide fast flowing creek. Long gradual decent to lava springs. Lunch. Up to camp after seasonal spring mile 2251. .13.3 miles today. Dinner with neighbors. Bed at 8pm

Day 3, PCT Mile 2251-2262. Up at 6am. Set alarms for 5am then 5:30am and got up at 6am. We needed the extra morning sleep. Breakfast, packed up and got more water for the morning hike. Steep up til lunch and hotter than yesterday. Down til last water for 10 miles and level to camp at Walupt Lake trail jct. Camp at mile 2262. 7:20pm.

Day 4, PCT Mile 2262-2272. Up hill all day and all day and all day through Cispus Pass! Beautiful even with all the smoke from local fires! Refilled with water at Cispus River. Got extra cooking water that another small seasonal stream. Wanted to camp close to Cispus Basin. Had to push on up another mile to a wonderful camp at 2272.1. Had dinner with two Northbounders. Got to bed late by 830.

Day 5, PCT Mile 2272-2279. (NOTE: I forgot to start track until PCT-Old Snowy Jct. Adding another 1043ft to elevation. Total Elevation is 1765ft. Total elevation gain is not known for this section) Northbounders are gone first thing. Took my time. Decided my plan for the day was go to McCall Basin. Up up up all the way to the junction of PCT an old snowy. Talked to northbounder who was now southbounding. She skipped Oregon and South bounded Washington to avoid fires. She was coming to grips that this may be her last leg due to fires. I stayed here for over an hour. Had cell service contacted Friends and Family. Texted other family on The Knife. Got water on the other side. Found camp at mile 2279, half-mile before McCall basin. In tent by 730 because of the cold and the wind. Cooler tonight. I put the fly on tonight. Could rain.

Day 6, PCT Mile 2279-2287. Chilly night but not bad. Up late. Breakfast and coffe, packed up and left at 9:30am. Getting ride for a Saturday pickup. Planning on staying at campsite after Shoe Pass. Trail is downhill to Lutz Lake. Got almost 2 liters of water. Hard to filter. Lake questionable. Saw the kids (a couple we've been leapfrogging all week, dubbed them "The Kids") at Lutz. Down and level till after campsite. Up up up til Hidden Springs jct. took break. The kids arrived about 10 min later. Up til Shoe Lake jct and right to Shoe Lake. Got water and lunch. Up and up til Shoe Lake Pass. The kids arrived about 5 min later. :) Walked over the Pass to campsite CS2287. Passed it since my apps couldn't agree. Came back and the kids had the spot I wanted. I took a more exposed site but really good if it doesn't rain. :) In tent by 5pm. Cool and windy after sun went below ridge behind us. Made coffee and dinner. Let kids borrow my stove. Twice. They had fuel. Contacted all the family. Time now is 8:06pm. Almost time for bed. Cold and blowing all night. Tent caved in from all sides all night. High winds. Kids helped me pack up in the morning...very windy! No breakfast up here. 5 miles till White Pass. No track for this 5 miles (phone battery low). Took my time. Arrived at Trailhead at 10:55...right on time. Wonderful trip and beautiful despite all the smoke. An awesome experience. Next year...I'll shoot for over 100 miles in one hike. :)

Great aerobic exercise

views are incredible and it's a fairly easy, shorter hike

For some reason I like to go on this hike when I need to think, the scenery and views are amazing. Especially on a nice day.
