Best 6 a.m. hike

Table Rock

Editors' Picks

In the summer, Table Rock is best hiked at 6 a.m. Wait until 6 p.m. and--without a single shady spot to be found between the trailhead and the summit--you may be the victim of sunstroke. But first thing in the morning, it's cool, it's quiet, and little else gets the lazy blood moving like that first quarter-mile of steep-ass terrain. Make it to the top with a few minutes to watch the city wake up and then barrel down the hillside to make it home for a shower just before work.
