Posted: Mar 20, 2019 5:43 PM

JACKSON COUNTY, Ore.-- You can learn all about the wildflower, wildlife, and geography on guided hikes at the Table Rocks this spring.

The Nature Conservancy and Medford District Bureau of Land Management are once again offering free, education hikes on both Upper and Lower Table Rocks. 

Hikes are led by specialists from around the region who will help you find, interpret and enjoy the parts of nature that are special to you.

New this year, you can download the iNaturalist app to share what you've found on your hike.

For 40 years The Nature Conservancy and the Bureau of Land Management have protected and managed the Table Rocks to provide a spectacular outdoor classroom showcasing our valley’s natural and cultural history.

Hikers will meet at the designated trailhead for a 2.5–4.5 mile round trip hike up 800 feet along a moderate grade trail. Participants should dress for the weather and terrain and bring water and snacks since hikes to the top may last 3 to 4 hours. Restrooms are available only at each trailhead; there is no drinking water. Due to limited parking at the trailheads, carpooling is encouraged. Dogs and vehicles are not allowed on the trail.

Guided hikes will be offered on weekends in April and May. All hikes are free to the public but reservations are required as space is limited. Information about the hikes and online reservations will be available at https://table-rock-hikes-2019.eventbrite.com. Registration for April hikes begins Friday, March 22 and for May hikes on Friday, April 19.

For information, contact the Medford District BLM at 541.618.2200, M-F, 7:45 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.
