As the sign says, Upper Table rock is up stream along the Rogue River and the trail
is about a 3 mile round trip and climbs 725 feet to the top.
It does not take long to gain enough elevation to get a nice view of the valley.

As summer heats up, the poison oak turns red.
Yes, the top is as flat as a table.
