Table Rock Trail

I completed the trail yesterday, leaving the trail base at 9:30am and arriving at the summit marker at 11:45am . I carried a 15-lb., backpack for exercise, including three liters of (mostly unneeded) water. My Pacer poles were outstanding in helping me tackle that strenuous, demanding steep ascent. This trail is not for the faint hearted, but I suppose that taken at a slower pace any fit person should be able to manage it. I saw teenagers giving up half way up, and a middle-age man was resting a mid-trail, leaving his wife, whom I met later, to go to the summit by herself . This is a superb if difficult trail with glorious views at the top. The rating, qualifying it as moderate could get unprepared people in trouble.

I almost forgot! Be sure to visit the park office after your walk to enjoy the beautiful view of the lake before you go! Park staff is very helpful as well. super nice

this 4.5 mile walk through the woods was pretty awesome! Lots of information posted in the trail and the trail is very clearly marked. Wildlife continued to walk around although scared very easily. Definitely would do this again

This was a fairly disappointing outing. The trails are lightly traveled and not marked well, at all! I tried to follow a track and found myself constantly ending up on the gravel roads. Eventually I found an entry point and made my way through but decided to cut my hike short and make my way back to the car.

This area has loads of potential if someone would take the time to mark the trails and clear up the blowdowns. Otherwise, I could see someone getting lost in here.

Great trail! The SE section of the loop is probably not appropriate for small children. Fairly challenging down and up - good distance. I will be back soon!

This makes for a good hike with kids. There are a lot of trails and false trails crossing the path, nothing that someone with experience would get confused by, but kids might be a bit turned around. The decent to the falls is pretty steep-sided and slippery, again something about which hikers with little kids will want to be cautious. All in all, a great hike. For reference, my kids that hiked it are 4 1/2 and 3 years old (3yo was in arms a bit, but she walked most of it!)

Did this trail on the day it opened. It's nice BUT it's difficult walking constantly in those large stones. 3 of us women ended up with pain from hip to ankle . Will never do it again. It's flat but you can't walk on the path all the time
