Location

To find the Upper Table Rock trailhead from Interstate 5 take Central Point exit 33 (just north of Medford), drive east on Biddle Road 1 mile, turn left on Table Rock Road for 5.2 miles to a curve, and turn right on Modoc Road for 1.5 miles to the trailhead parking lot on the left, just opposite an electric substation (Don’t miss the Kirtland Sewer Ponds east on Kirtland Road just before the Rogue River and Modoc ponds just after you cross the river on your right). To find the Lower Table Rock trailhead from here, get back in your car, return 1.5 miles to Table Rock Road, turn right (away from Medford) to milepost 10, and then turn left on Wheeler Road 0.8 mile.

Habitat and Birds

Most people come here for Oak Titmouse and California Towhee. However, the bird life here has much more to offer. Ruffed Grouse have been found on the slopes and Peregrine Falcons have been seen checking out the cliffs. Lewis’s and Acorn Woodpeckers have been found along with Hutton’s Vireo and Bushtit. Look for Lesser Goldfinches feeding on star thistle. In migration, just about anything is possible on Table Rock.
