Found at the height of 800 feet (243 meters), the Upper and Lower Table Rock are two old volcanic plateaus. A seven million-year-old andesitic lava flow is the reason behind their formation. The sites are historically significant because of the inhabitation of Native Americans approximately 15,000 years before the settlement of European-Americans. Home to nearly 340 species of flora, the dwarf woolly meadowfoam, a type of wildflower can be found near the rocks.
