"A fairly steep hike up a spectacular flat-topped mesa with rare plants and outstanding views. This immense formation with the look of a flat-topped desert mesa is one of the prominent landmarks along the middle section of the Rogue River. Lower and Upper Table Rocks are fascinating in their geology, botany, and history. The trail makes a pleasant afternoon jaunt in winter or spring. March and June are best for wildflowers. Beautiful golden fields of flowers (including a species called goldfield) blanket the top in March, while myriad wildflowers bloom in June. The trailhead area was built by The Nature Conservancy, which also maintains the trail and owns a piece of the rock. They’ve done a commendable job." Read more

"The Table Rocks are a pair of misplaced monoliths that rise above the Rogue Valley northwest of Medford. For itchy-footed hikers zipping by on Interstate 5, these cliff-edged basalt mesas stir an almost irresistible desire to climb to the top and take in the view. Fortunately, good trails lead to the top of each rock. And once you get there, you can not only enjoy the expected view but also marvel at the many unusual plants that call these rocks home. Both trails are worthwhile, but the one up Lower Table Rock, owned by The Nature Conservancy, is marginally more scenic and has better wildflower displays. Dogs are not allowed on the trail."

good day hike leading to plateau which used to be a makeshift landing strip. lots of fog in the early morning and evening hours reducing visibility to zero. make sure you have a clear day or night for views. trail is marked clearly with informative guides along the way
