Very narrow road up. Seems to go on forever. Very steep. Dont look down lol. One lane traffic with fee places to turn around. If you dont like heights this is not the place for you. If your a dare devil its a must.

At the base of Table Rock, in the Table Rock parking lot/picnic area, is one of the prettiest places one can be. It is actually on a ridgeline. From this parking lot, one can hike South to the Chimneys (flat, easy hike), then hike further...More

The views are spectacular. You drive for roughly 30 minutes on a dirt/gravel switchback road. Hike is strenuous, but doable. Just at the start of our decent we clearly heard a large lion that was not too happy.

Table rock is an excellent hike.It begins at the parking lot(one note-a rather long drive in from US-181) It is also near Hawksbill ,which I find less appealing. The trail starts at the parking lot. It is all uphill(moderately strenuous). There are some good views...More

Table Rock is definitely a favorite of mine. It is a moderate hike and has excellent views in several areas, especially at the top. It overlooks the Linville Gorge and even has spots to camp. Is great for a day hike!

Only a mile hike but not easy. You are often climbing over rocks that act as steps. Some very high. Several places to step over and view Linville Gorge The views make it well worth the effort. Dogs allowed. Small children did well and loved...More

Unfortunately you can't. From the park lot to the top of Table Rock its only a mile up from there. It's beautiful up there. It's not a stressful walk up there.
