Hiked up yesterday in pretty foul weather. It was misty and beautiful. no view at the top, but its wonderful to feel enveloped in clouds. The road up was pretty rough, but certainly not the worst I've been on. It has been repaired and now you can park at the trailhead. Going out there again on a sunny and clear day.

I've lived in East Clackamas County for ten years and cannot believe I've never hiked this trail before. We were impressed that it seemed that the road had been recently maintained and there were plenty of signs leading the way. We took the upper trailhead to the top and spent the night on Sunday before Memorial Day. This trail is an instant favorite! We got a late afternoon start and worried about finding a camping spot when there were already six cars parked at the trailhead, but we met everyone on their way down and had the top to ourselves. It was a cloudy afternoon/evening, but the views both along the trail and at the top were still amazing. I can't wait to make it a longer trip by starting at the lower trailhead on a warm, sunny, clear day.

We've done this hike many times and it never disappoints us. Today Mothers Day 2014 was a surprise though... starting at the bolder field we ran into snow and it just kept getting deeper, the top had about 8" at 43 deg. and only one set of tracks ahead of us so it was amazing. Trail down was pretty slick but doable. Had to make a little snow man and then get down as more weather was coming. Funny thing was down in the valley it was at 70 deg.

A wonderful trail in the middle of nowhere. If you want a decent chance at seeing bears and/or cougars, it's here. The Molalla wilderness is a terrific and underused area. Anyway, it's a great trail starting out at the Rooster Rock trailhead that turns into a longer ridge hike to one of the few remaining stone cupulas left in the state. It's a terrific jumping-off point for hitting Rooster Rock or Table Rock. Just a great hike in a underused area. Bring lunch, or a sleeping bag and friends and stay in the lookout. There's a spring nearby for water.

Lions, and tigers, and bears: oh my! §§§ Put a dress on me and call me Dorothy; I might have a new favourite trail. I knew it was going to be a good one when .2 miles from the trailhead I ran into a black bear--my first bear sighting in Oregon. I startled him as I rounded a corner, and this 100lb+ creature shot up a steep creek bed with shocking speed. I was scared, surprised, and… found myself smiling ear-to-ear for hours following. There was coyote scat, an occurrence of cougar scat, and a fellow hiker who had a supporting witness that claimed they'd spotted a silver fox a few miles up the trail. I don't know what the hell was going on, but Table Rock seems to be critter paradise. §§§ Maybe it's because you're so far away from Kansas; moreover, maybe that's why I enjoyed it so. There were two sets of hikers on the entire 8 miles on a sunny Sunday--two! How great is that? It's pleasantly out in the middle of nowhere. §§§ You hike an old washed-out road, beautiful old growth, a talus slope, see amazing rock outcroppings, and end-up on top of the world. Up-top, I was looking at Hood, Jeff, Jack, and Brokentop... plus Faith, Hope, and Charity too. It was absolutely stunning, and--thankfully--no one seems to go here. §§§ Getting here isn't a breeze, and you'll be out of cell range for the last 20 miles. Although only 45 miles from Portland, it'll take you two hours to arrive. And leave your low-rider at home: the road will rip the front air dam right off it (and deservedly so: no one likes your yellow '95 Accord with the huge fin on the back anyhow--trust me here). I included written directions to the trailhead in the details section. §§§ If you want a well-groomed and perfect trail… go to Multnomah Falls. This one is fair but occasionally tricky, in the vein of Hamilton Mountain or the Cape Horn Loop. And it's effing fantastic. I included a map in my pics. Enjoy, people: the yellow-brick road has nothing on this trail.

Rekindling the urge to hike again after 20+ years. I enjoy hikes with elevation and great views. The Table Rock trail ended up being a very enjoyable trek. As described by other hikers, it offers some variety: wide path (at start), deep woods, rock (boulder) field, narrow paths along ledges, and a few steep inclines to test your legs and lungs. The trail's difficulty is rated as "moderate". The difficult sections are minimal and are spread out over the 4 mile hike. Once you break out on the Table top, you have great views of the various ranges. Unfortunately today there were some distant low hanging clouds which blocked a clear view of Mt. Hood and St. Helens - a little disappointing :(
The trail is not clearly marked in a few sections, but reading reviews from others and using a little common sense helped us to successfully navigate. The one minor down side is the last 4 miles of rough unpaved road to get to the trailhead. Enjoy this trail.

Hiked Table Rock this weekend, the weather was pretty good and the view was great as always. Not to many people on the trail, however the top was to crowded for my taste. This was my sixth time up and it seems to get better every time. Enjoy the photos.

I spent a few hours hiking some of these trails with my dog today. It is a beautiful area...the river, trees, trails, creeks, and small waterfalls. The trail system goes on forever.....or it seems like it. They are doing some logging using helicopters and such so some areas are off limits right now, but normally the trails are open year round to hikers and seasonally to bikes and horses. Only annoyance I noticed was the amount of trash along the road by the river. I really wish people would throw their trash in the actual garbage not just wherever they want. Otherwise the area is great...awesome hiking, well marked and maintained trails. Watch out for some fallen trees and the snow at the summit of Rim Trail. The trails are marked by difficulty as well and the maps at the info areas are very helpful. Worth the trip!
