An easy hike with beautiful views!

The hike took about 1.5 hours and we weren't rushing. This a really interesting geological site with great views as well!

The tablelands is a must see as you see the earth's crust exposed. There is only a couple places on earth that you can see this. The hike is flat and short so no need to trek too far. It is a one way hike so you will have to re-trace your steps to return. You will feel like you... More

We did this walk/hike in June and it was certainly a different experience - to walk on the earth'a mantle! You can book a guided tour and no doubt it would be very educational. We opted to walk it alone without any crowds. We've hiked in the Rockies so had no fear of attempting the tablelands alone. It's not an... More

Worth visiting. We were not able to do the tablelands hike because of cloud cover. It rained 3/5 days when we where there.

We did the trail at Tablelands on our own as part of a Geocaching Earthcache. In retrospect we should have stopped at the visitors center before (and not after) our trek - and in reading other reviews, it would have been nice to have taken in a guided tour as well. The parking area was amazingly full considering the time... More

Our first introduction to the Tablelands was from the back via the Trout River Pond trail. The hike required several river fords (likely a result of the large rain accumulations in the previous days) but other than that was not very difficult. I completed it in rain boots while my boyfriend was wearing hiking boots (which he seriously regretted after... More

Park in the lot and hike the trail across the Tablelands where the earth's mantle is visible, a rare opportunity making this location a World Heritage site. The wind can be brutal. We were there in October and really appreciated a warm layer, and hat and gloves, even on a sunny day. There is an interpretive center on the drive... More

We were lucky with a mild weather and no wind. Great walk, great sights. This landscape dwarfs and humbles you. Highly recommended, not too difficult walk.

This was an incredible hike. The tablets were unavailable the day we went. Fortunately we had an I phone to download the app with the guided tour. An absolute must see! Loved it.
