This past weekend I don't know why but I decided after hearing so many people talking about the beautiful views up Table Rock I had to see it for myself. Sunday morning I didn't plan on waking up before 5 a.m. but I did so I decided this would be the perfect time to take my trek up the trail. Although things didn't go exactly according to plan.

Since this was my first time planning on going up the hiking trail I just popped in the destination into my phone GPS and I was off. I didn't know at the time there was a driving path all the way to the top of Table Rock, which is of course the way that my GPS took me. I swear I was dressed and fully prepared to hike, but my lack of common knowledge got in the way.

I was early enough in the morning that the back gate was not opened yet so I did have about a 1/2 to 3/4 mile hike each way to complete the trek up the mountain, but that was not difficult at all. Once I was at the top the views were gorgeous. As it got later in the early morning I could see lots of rabbits running around on top of Table Rock, which was pretty cool.

If you haven't made the trip up I would high suggest it. Whether you drive or walk up the trail you have a beautiful view waiting for you at the top.
