Description

Upper Table Rock and its twin, Lower Table Rock, rise 800 feet above the Rogue River Valley. These mesas are flat-topped remnants of lava flows that filled the canyons of the ancient Rogue River over seven million years ago. Atop the Table Rocks you will find a mixture of grassy mounds, stony flats and vernal ponds, as well as an excellent display of early spring wildflowers.

For more information, visit The Nature Conservancy or the Bureau of Land Management.

NOTE: Dogs are not allowed in order to prevent the disturbance of ground nesting birds and other animals.
