Journey to the headwaters of the Molalla River and explore the unique and unusual basalt formations of the Table Rock Wilderness.
Distance: 5.0 miles
Elevation Gain: 1,100 feet
Leader: Jonathan Jelen
Location: Table Rock Wilderness, Salem BLM
The Table Rock area outside of Molalla is a hidden wilderness gem. Designated in 1984, the Table Rock Wilderness shelters the headwaters of the Molalla River (soon to be designated as a Wild and Scenic River, fingers crossed).
The area has seen its fair share of volcanic activity, and the basalt formations which form the jagged rocks are quite a sight to behold. Speaking of sights, the breathtaking views from atop Rooster Rock and Table Rock allow hikers to see up to ten of the Cascade peaks, including nearby Mt. Jefferson.
As we near the top, we'll also have the chance to soak in some beautiful wildflower meadows.
