Great beautiful hike with the pup & friends :) happy to see it being kept clean!

It’s a nice hike on a gravel trail for the family but it was wall to wall people up and down making it less enjoyable. Perhaps try it on a cold and cloudy day.

Fairly gradual hike up an wide, dirt road. We went on one of the first warm days of Spring, and the crowds were unbelievable. The tower at the top felt like a party, with probably 50 people crammed onto the top level. This would make a decent hike on a day with less people, but it wouldn’t be phenomenal.

Enjoyable, I'll try it again in the summer for hopefully better scenery.

Hiked the tower trail on Sunday- it was VERY icy, but that made it more challenging and fun.

Nice hike with family. Very busy, which is a pro and a con. Great for dogs as there were a bunch of dogs on this trail. Nice views from the tower.

Great place to go for a hike and just the right distance to walk. Bring water and if you have a dog with you bring water for him too, very important.

Well marked trail

Beautiful view when you reached the tower!

The trail itself was not a strenuous hike and is very doable for those that are looking for something less intense and short. It isn't very well marked, as we found out to indicate that you are on the correct trail, so so keep an eye on the markers and if possible use an app that tracks routes.

Scenic hike and beautiful views from the top at the tower!!! Great photo opp!

Amazing view at the top, does get a little muddy along the trail if it has rained.

Went up to the Tower and a loop through the blue/orange/red/green/white trails. Leaves aren’t changed yet, so if you’re looking for colors wait a week or two more. Be careful of the fallen leaves obscuring the trail. Keep an eye out for markers if you’re not using AllTrails and GPS.

Great views and a good hike for anyone looking for a challenge.

beautiful views. would recommend hiking shoes. can do in winter, fall, spring and summer

Usually very very popular on weekends, but the path is easy to follow and great views when you get to the top.

Took the Tower trail up to the Tower then continued down the Blue trail, cut back on the green, and returned on the yellow. Great easy going hike with a few challenging spots. Next time I would do this path in reverse to make it more challenging. The Blue & Green part of the trail are a little steeper and more technical than the Tower trail.

Fun rock scrambling so wear good hiking shoes. Some scrambles were difficult but you will be rewarded with great views!

wide gravel trail, doable with a trail stroller, and good for kids, very easy, crowded, just note the length. it's cool because it takes you to the tower, but there are much better hiking trails there.

Parts were a bit rocky for my dog.

Easy switchbacking trail, wide and relatively gentle. Great views at the top.

Great family trail if you have little ones. Terrific views and diverse vegetation.

the large rocks you have to walk on threwout the path sucked, and my little Lilly hated it even more....

Good, intense hike. I started on the violet trail, crossed over to red, then climbed the blue all the way up. Definitely some steep climbs, but great views. I went down the blue and connected with the tower trail to head down. I would recommend it if you're looking for a bit of a challenge!

Fun! Great views!

A challenging hike! Blue and white trails have some very difficult terrain. highly recommend a quality pair of boots before attempting. Views from the tower are great, and this trail mostly avoids the heavily trafficked tower trail.

I would actually recommend following the blue trail all the way though. Taking the white trail on the return leg is just as difficult and not nearly as rewarding.

You start at the bottom and head to the top where the tower is. A decent outing you can do with anyone.

Spent the afternoon exploring the trails. They are well marked with lots of traffic. Took a few detours on the more challenging trails, nice views & overlooks. It's easy to get lost when going off the main trail- bring a compass.
