The Table Rocks are visited by more then 10,000 visitors annually. Formed over seven million years ago from a volcanic explosion at Mr. Olsen, Table Rocks is now home to hundreds of rare bird and plant species and varied landscapes that visitors of all ages can appreciate -- hardwood forests, volcanic features and cliffs. They also have a long and interesting tribal history.
Views from the cliffs extend across the Rogue River to the Siskiyous and the Cascades. Dogs, horses, fires and flower picking are banned on both Table Rocks trails. Spring offers the best time for viewing the many different wild flowers and mirgratory birds.
During the spring months, you can join The Nature Conservancy on one of their interpretive hikes through Table Rocks.
