Great hike from Shortoff to Tablerock. Be warned though if you are coming from wolf pit parking area and plan to go to tablerock it is a 10.6 mile trip there. Also the only source of water is located in the first 2 miles of that journey so bring plenty. Overall a beautiful place.

It's real good , no sign to wolfpit road . After pass all the lake James entrance you'll go over a small bridge then the small dirt road /Slash driveway almost a mile on left has about 5-6 mailboxes at end of it with some letters on mail box saying wolfpit . That's only sign . Go straight up rocky road wouldn't do it in bad weather it's not a state maintained road and almost 3 miles long . Copperheads are out so be careful .
