Table Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This loop trip is well suited to backpackers looking to escape the crowds in other parts of the Mount Jefferson Wilderness. Two factors ensure a lower trail population. The first is that the trailhead is on the east side of the range, which forces hikers coming from the Willamette Valley to drive an additional hour to start their hike. Second, the approach route has no realistic destination for day hikers, so usually only backpackers and equestrians take this trail. Fortunately, you do not have to sacrifice scenery for solitude, because the beauty here exceeds all expectations. Note: In late 2003 the B&B Complex Fire burned much of this area; expect a blackened landscape with limited shade for several years."
