you can access trail directly across road form storm castle trailhead. moderate hike, about 3-3.5 miles to the tower. beautiful 360 degree views!! the last half mile is fairly steep on gravel road, slippery when going back down.

Short hike but has some pretty steep parts near the top. Well worth the views of the surrounding mountains. Even better if you get to spend the night in the lookout cabin which has a wood stove and a cabinet where hikers leave supplies for others who come after them. Definitely pack in plenty of water, we got lucky there was still some snow at the peak. Otherwise the nearest water source is probably Rat Lake.

Great one. Good for mountain bikers. lots of trail is forest service road\atv trail. About 3 miles of trail is non motorized. There is a forest service look out tower on top of the mountain and can be rented for a night.
