03.21.14.....North Table Mountain

HIKE DETAILS: Elevation - 1300 ft. Location -  2488 Cherokee Rd., Oroville, CA Mileage - 6 miles Hiking time - 2+ hours - depending on how many times you stop to take pictures (for us, it was a lot!) Directions - when you plug in the address it will tell you to circle around to the north of the plateau on Hwy. 70 and take the Cherokee Rd. exit. I've never gone that way, though I suspect the road might be a bit better so I'll try it next time. Both times I've taken the Nelson Ave. exit, then left onto Cherokee Rd. and up to the plateau. The road is very narrow and windy, so be prepared. When you get to the top, the parking lot (with porta-potties) is on the left near a large oak tree. Weather - about as perfect as you can get! North Table Mountain Ecological Preserve , just outside of Oroville, is an interesting place to explore with very unique geology:  waterfalls, vernal pools, cliffs, lava rock, and then throw in some grazing cattle, beautiful oak tre

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork." If this doesn't show the amazing and beautiful creation that God has made for us in this world, I don't know what does. Wouldn't it be cool if we could sometimes view life in time-lapse format?
