Descent loop not to difficult views were ok nothing spectacular but another tower down

Great hike and the view at the top of the tower is amazing!

I love this hike. I go once every season and have been going since I was little. The view from the top of the fire tower is breathtaking each and every time.

Beautiful views from the top , shorter trail is a very steep incline , so if you have littles with you I suggest the other trail , well worth the hike and the views from the Fire Tower are amazing

nice walk

very peaceful hike, with a beautiful view from the tower :)

Nice, easy hike. A 300 foot section is pure mud though, enough to go up to you ankles. Fire tower was in good shape and can be climbed.

Loved this hike in early August -3 trails to get up to tower...great views of all the lakes from the top...drove by Vrooman's Restaurant!!! Steep incline duable, short trail better for small children.

Definitely rocky and muddy but clear path and SO worth the time! INCREDIBLE view from the tower.

very slippery on a rainy day. it would be a great hike on a nice day. Couldn't see a thing from top of tower due to clouds, fog and rain. would do it again...but in sunny weather!

I went backpacking by myself. I recommend parking at the CR 125 junction before entering in. There is parking nook on the left side beginning of Holmes Road. I parked overnight with no problems. Half of Holmes Road leading to the lake is private property so you will notice a lot of tire marks and signs to not enter off the road. Some are very muddy. You will see a yellow gate blocking all cars to enter and the trail from then on has mini creeks so you have to walk around the trail if you don't have rain boots. Overall the end point is beautiful and there is a premade campfire setup by others. The view is great to wakeup to during the sunrise.

Went up the Northern Trail to the fire tower then down the Eastern Trail from the observers' cabin. No view from summit, however, excellent view of Canada and Pine Lake as well as Shaker Mt. Forest from the top of the fire tower. Eastern Trail was poorly marked but easy to follow.
