The view was amazing! The climb was a little tough with 2 dogs, but it was all worth it once we reached the top.

Absolutely incredible. Pictures can never do this place amy justice. The view waiting for you at the top is well worth the hike.

I imagine springtime is the best time for this hike. Everything is so green right now. The bathroom is perfectly placed. We chose to walk through the meadow that parallels the dirt road and found it very scenic and peaceful. The last bit of this trail before reaching the plateau is very steep and rocky, a challenge for this semi-fit 50 year old. I was very pleased to have persevered as the view from the top was a satisfying reward.

BEAUTIFUL hike. The address in the app is spot on. It has enough challenges to know you enjoyed a nice workout and enough areas that are easy walking. We took 5 kids ages 10 to 13 and they all loved it and did it with ease. It's rocky up at the top but just take your time and use the rocks and trees as your friend to help you along the way. Had lunch at the top and then enjoyed the trip back down. Yes, you're in the direct sun some, but there's lots of shade as well. We will definitely do this again!

this was a great hike! We parked before the gate to make it a tad longer for ourselves. As others have said, the walk to the bathroom is easy and very flat. Then, the next miles is quite uphill, but still doable :) We were a group of 4 with ages of 17-52! We brought a yummy lunch to have at the top!

Nice hike. As another stated, it's not a loop though. We went when the temp was 68 or so and it was perfect. Can't imagine in summer - too hot. When you park you can choose to walk the road (on private property, but allowed) or make a sharp right just before the gated road and take the actual trail. It's clearly marked but yes, you do need to look right. I'm glad we took the hike path - it went through some very beautiful meadows. Very different than the uphill, rocky hike that lies ahead...so you get the best of both worlds. If you do choose the road thought it is a bit shorter. The hike is diffidently up hill A LOT and lots of rocks that make the actual path a bit difficult to follow (but not too tough) but it's not too hard at all and it's beautiful at the top. We had ages 45, 18 and 11 and we did just fine!

A great hike, but this is NOT a loop as the site suggests. It's about a 4 mile roundtrip hike, so 2 miles to get to the Table Top which is worth every step of the way. The first mile is relatively easy. The second mile is where the fun part starts - the uphill climb to get to the Table Top! This is not an easy hike and definitely not good for very young kids. We took one of our boys (10 y/o) with us and he did great, but any younger than that would be a tough task. None of the areas are dangerous, but they can be difficult to traverse. Some areas are slick, plenty of rocks, and part of the path is not clearly marked. As long as you keep heading UP, you'll be in great shape! This is a hike you want to do with plenty of water, a snack and on a mild weather day. We went the end of March 2016 and had some great weather (60's temps). We will definitely do this one again - fantastic views from the top of Table Mountain!!

An easy hike, and beautiful views. Worth the trip. Hike to the top (the table) and explore the beautiful country landscape, wildflowers, lava rocks and amazing views of the lake on one and Tuolumne mnts (twds Yosemite I think) on the other side, and the west view to coastal mountains. Beautiful day
I will be back.

To begin with, do not listen to the directions provided by google. They are wrong. It will lead to two hours wandering on some land looking for a trail head, then giving up and going back to your car only to find a note on your mini van saying that you are trespassing. Come to find out, the trail is actually on Shell RD. And the trail is much easier to find! I went on a Saturday afternoon in February. It was so hot. I do not at all recommend going on a hot day. Or a rainy day/ after a rainy day. Honestly the trail is Moderate. Im not sure how children, yet alone this older man were able to complete it. My eighteen year old body along with my three other teen-aged friends were struggling. The last little bit getting to the top was the worst! It was a mix of large steps and kind of lifting yourself onto big rocks.. Intense! Overall, the view was amazing! You really feel like you have accomplished something when you're on top! In conclusion, I recommend this hike and to go on dang shell rd, NOT perrys ferry or whatever the directions tell you to!
