This trail is not accessible in times of heavy snow. Cedar river rd turns into a snow mobile trail 4 miles from the trail head. Update: barley made it to the trail head with 4x4. Tower is closed, very dangerous to climb. Not recommend as a solo hike, coyote prints everywhere back there.

it was a great hike about 3 miles in and 3 out. was very well marked and easy to follow. sign as base says 1.0 mile and it's straight up and rocky went muddy. sneakers will not do it definitely ankle boots. tower and Ranger Station was awesome tower is the tallest one ! u have to climb up a metal ladder into the tower on the top but the views are breath taking will blow you away. careful on your way down can get slippery and can slide. lots of water spits for pups too. enjoy !

Beautiful trail in the fall. The fire tower is crazy tall and there was a slight wind up there, which was a little scary. Overall, though, a nice hike through beautiful fall trees to an amazing view!

This is one of the towers that's off the beaten trail. The seasonal road that the trailhead is located on isn't as bad as some of the other ones I traveled. The first 2 miles are relatively flat with minimal elevation gain, but the last mile is the steepest part of the trail. Views from the tower was very nice. The bug activity was horrible so if you hike this, make sure that you spray yourself before hiking.

Great fun. Really quiet area with limited fishing. We go back at least once a year!

After only a mile in we stumble upon a fairly large black bear eating from a tree trunk about 50 feet from us. Took him or her a minute to realize we were there before running away! The last mile up, the steep incline, felt like 3 miles but the views up top were amazing!
