Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A massive lava flow of olivine basalt rock, ending on the west in a palisade of cliffs above the Sacramento Valley, North Table Mountain offers some of the most brilliant wildflower displays in the Sierra Nevada. A ramble over its broad volcanic plateau also turns up many other surprises, including vernal pools, ephemeral waterfalls, box canyons, and a strangely beautiful, moor-like terrain."
