So far I've only walked up the half gravel/half paved path to the fire tower. The walk up from the parking area is steep so it's best to be prepared for it. The path cuts through most of Mt. Ninham, however does not offer any views of the valley. The fire tower is 82'6"ft high and not for the faint of heart. Beware of impending weather as rain storms/wind storms have higher strength gusts at the top of the tower. The views from 1/2 way to the top of the tower are all spectacular and I've walked this multiple times. Path to the fire tower is on the right of the parking area that is off of Gypsy Trail Rd. in Kent, NY. Beware the road to the parking area is steep and narrow and many people will speed on their way down.

great trail for a beginner. little bit of a steep climb in the beginning but had spectacular views from the Fire tower (definitely not for faint of hearts).
way down take the unpaved trail to the right of tower.
