Table Rock, NC A Great Place To Hike




Table Rock, located in the Appalachian Mountains in Burke County, North Carolina, is a wonderful place to spend a day hiking, picnicking, or rock climbing. Located in the Pisgah National Forest and in the Linville Gorge area, the view from the top is spectacular. To get there, from Morganton, NC, drive north on Highway 181 and when you get to Gingercake Road, take a left. This will very quickly turn into a dirt/gravel road and you will travel 8 or 9 miles to the parking area. It gets very windy at the very top. The hike to the top is about one mile. To some, this hike might be a little challenging.

The picture on the left is a handmade 5" by 7" postcard I made. Two of the photographs are taken at the top and one is a view of Table Rock. The postcard can be purchased at http://sewupscale.etsy.com/. Makes a great gift.
