About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Upper Table Rock Trail is a 2.8 mile heavily trafficked trail located near White City, Oregon that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate.

The trail climbs through a scrub oak grassland ablaze with spring wildflowers and dotted with view points and a rest bench. At the 1.1-mile mark, after a final steep pitch, the trail emerges onto the table’s amazingly flat, grassy summit. In 200 yards the path crosses an old road. Here you can either turn left along the road to a viewpoint at the table’s southern tip or continue straight without a trail to a dramatic viewpoint west–both good destinations before heading back the way you came to your car.

In all seasons, beware of triple-leafleted poison oak along sides of trail.

Trail highlights

Viewpoint

One of the best views of the Rogue River Valley!

Once a sanctuary for Takelma Indians, today these cliff-edged mesas near Medford are open to hikers and covered with endangered wildflowers. Views from the cliffs extend across the Rogue River to the Siskiyous and the Cascades, showcasing Mt. McLoughlin to the east and even the rim of Crater Lake to the northeast. This trail is great year-round, just watch for post-rain mud! Visit in spring to catch the best flower displays. Shaded sections provide relief for an early-morning summer hike. Falls colors are on display and a sunny winter day is hard to beat!

Dogs, horses, fires and flower picking are banned on Upper Table Rock trail. The trail is a mix of dirt and rock with the occasional tree root. Carriers or stable-walking little ones encouraged.

Hello! I joined Hike it Baby in August of 2016 as a way to get outside with my then 6-month old. Shortly after, I became a Branch Ambassador, it was that much fun! I have two little boys now and although our hiking pace has slowed, we still love to be outside. We’ve met some amazing families through Hike it Baby and can’t imagine life without our community 🙂 Whether you are a Rogue Valley native or new-to-the-area transplant, we’d love to share some time outside with you! Cheers!
