Welcome to the Table Rocks
The 4,864-acre Table Rocks Management Area is cooperatively owned and administered by the Medford District Bureau of Land Management (2,105 acres) and The Nature Conservancy (2,759 acres). Memorandums of Understanding signed in 2011 and 2012 with the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde and the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians allow for coordinating resources to protect the Table Rocks for present and future generations. A cooperative management plan for the area was completed in 2013.
Come enjoy the magic of nature's classroom and help us celebrate 30 years of education on the Table Rocks! Free guided hikes are offered on weekends in the spring. Three to five miles roundtrip guided hikes along a moderate grade trail generally last three to five hours. Anyone is welcome to sign up, but reservations are required. Space is limited to 20 individuals, unless otherwise noted. Please contact the Medford District BLM at 541-618-2200 to reserve a spot. You must register by 4 p.m. the Friday before the hike is scheduled. Further details can be found here:
Environmental Education at Table Rocks
The Table Rock Environmental Education program began over 20 years ago and marked the beginning of a partnership between the Bureau of Land Management and The Nature Conservancy. In the first few years, less than 100 individuals participated in guided hikes. Today, the BLM environmental educators host over 4,600 school children, teachers, parents, and other participating groups on guided hikes to the summit. In addition, over 500 individuals from the general public are led by volunteer specialists on hikes during the weekends in April and May.
