Short easy/moderate hike depending on your fitness level. Never too steep and plenty of level sections to get a break. Well marked and the trail isn't too rocky or full of roots. We did it to complete another fire tower for the challenge. Kids had no problem at all. It was a little buggy so bring bug spray. View from the fire tower was nice but you have to climb it to see anything. Too many hikers with dogs off the leash!!!!! And way too many hikers not cleaning up after them. The first stretch smelled like it too! I'll never understand why others can't have a little respect for other people on the trail. Leash your dogs!
