We had a hard time locating this area--someone here on TripAdvisor finally gave directions. We hiked up Upper Table Rock trail--a well-worn hiking trail is there, for about a mile plus, with some fairly steep passages towards the top--so wear some decent shoes. We walked along the trail and suddenly found ourselves atop a butte (a flat-topped mountain)--everything flat and almost treeless as can be, the size of several big football fields--with glorious views of the Rogue River valley below. We should have allowed more time to walk the rim along the top of the butte as the view was so gorgeous-- but it was late afternoon and we wanted to get down. It was so wonderful to have such a great viewpoint--we had never been atop a butte mountain before! Take your camera, a bottle of water (no facilities at the top, but there are bathrooms at the tourist parking lot, below. Directions, coming from Medford, take Central Point, Exit 33; go right or east on Biddle Road about 1 mile; Left on Table Rock road for about 5.2 miles; Right on Modoc for about 1.5 miles. You will see an established parking lot, with sign, and bathrooms on the left side of the road--the parking lot can hold about 30-40 cars. Parking lot just opposite an electric substation. This was definitely one of our highlights of Medford--funny the town doesn't publicize this very much. We were surprised by several clueless young women who had dogs alongside them on this walk--as there are multiple signs saying "no dogs." So be prepared for illiterate hikers. Also, take a drive and see the Gold Nugget road pullouts that let you view the Rogue River, along with hiking trails nearby on Highway 234 north of the little town of Gold Hill.
