Travel the twisting mountain road or hike the rugged trail to the top, either way you will be astounded at the beauty of mountain laurel in June and the spectacular colors of foliage in the fall.

WICKED EASY, I would not consider it a "hike" because you drive up to the boat launch. However, you can walk over across the tiny bridge and then there's 2 more little vantage points to the large part of the pond. Super easy and a great place to view the sunrise.

Easy hike done in the fall as part of the skys the limit challenge. Rode up most of way to parking area and quick hike to the tower. Great views

Easy trail. About 1/4 of it is quite a steep incline. Kids did it with me though and they loved it. Beautiful views from the tower.

Quick and easy walk for myself, husband, and dog to the tower, fun and busy park.

a fun rather easygoing over all trail if your in shape for some uphill hiking, the view from the top of the tower at the summit is far reaching and nice. parking is limited if the gates are closed but it does add to the hike.
