Visited on a late afternoon in May. Doesn't really look like much from the trailhead, or once you get to the tower for that matter, but the views from the tower itself are amazing - 360 degrees, rolling hills, lakes, reservoirs. Beautiful. I hiked up on the dirt road then back on the trail through the woods. If you want a big view with a short hike this is it. A bit buggy, so use bug spray and be sure to do a tick check.
