Table Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"From this high, barren, snow-blotched plateau that resembles a giant anvil wedged between “the great white one” (Baker) and “the rocky and precipitous one” (Shuksan), savor some of the finest horizon-spanning views this side of the Mississippi.

And while room at the Table is often at a premium on late summer weekends, beware: this hike can be dangerous if snow-covered, and parts are steep and somewhat exposed. If the route looks unnerving, turn around and enjoy the much mellower nearby Artist Point Trail instead."

The weather report stated "low clouds" would be present. As we drove up to Artist Point, the visibility was awful. You could barely see ten feet in front of you. Naturally, we thought we'd get above the clouds. We never did but decided to take the Table Mountain Train anyway. The trail was visible but we did not see any of the beautiful scenery. The trail was not hard. It was slightly rocky but easy to climb. Some parts were narrow. I'd keep a hold of your children. We arrived at the top and saw nothing but white (low clouds)! So ....on the way down we took pictures of the wildflowers and they were beautiful. I'd recommend this short hike. I'll go back when the weather is better.
