Awesome trail kinda tough in January with all the ice and snow, your working your body double and takes much longer to do especially going up to the fire tower need to take some precautions, poles and boot cleats are almost a must in these conditions but once you get up to the summit what awesome views..
took 4.5 hours at a moderate/fast pace. Great hike with amazing views, especially from the tower. some of the views on the far end of the yellow are excellent.Trails were well marked. the only time I had trouble was when you are descending on the yellow trail. you come across a blue trail that goes up and an unmarked washout looking trail. take the washout trail and within minutes you should see the brook and you will get onto the white trail. definatly dress in layers as well. the wind is crazy at the top of the towers.
Tough Hike. I had a little trouble finding the trail markers at some point but with some help of a local hiking guide I figured it out. The veiws from the top are nice but not as nice as a lot of the surrounding hikes in my opinion. None the less a nice hike I enjoyed very much
