It is a source of pride for local geologists, as it is an amazing example of an "inverted stream" formed by a river bed filling with lava, explaining its flat-topped, winding appearance. There is some disagreement on this subject, but the rock is Latite.
Presently, there's a lot of development in the area.
WATCH OUT FOR POISON OAK. The approach to many of the climbing areas is overgrown with it, and it can be found at the base (and even on the rock face) of many climbs.
Check out this drone fly-by for a look at Table Mountain and the surrounding area.
NOTE - THERE IS NO CAMPING ALLOWED ON SHELL ROAD ANYWHERE.
Open a closed gate at the presumed end of the road, drive through, close the gate, and drive (carefully, you're on private property) over some rough road. Continue onwards to a second gate (which is sometimes closed, sometimes open) and pass through. Parking is between this gate and the final (semi-permanently) locked gate.
