if your doing this trail it's rocky in some spots but you can also get to to fire tower by using the access roads along back of property. it's easier to come down that way.

I go to bays mountain frequently. it's so peaceful and beautiful.

love bays mountain. beautiful scenery. love to hike and walk all around .love the animal habitats.

really nice park, good trail/path conditions, moderate difficulty, great views from the top of the fire tower, if you don't mind heights. be careful climbing stairs, they have some sketchy ones.

pleasant surprise after getting past the crowded parking lot. found some peace and quiet on River Mountain Road trail.

have done this trail in every season, hiked with 6 inches of snow. Fall, spring, summer. all are good times To go. at 12 o'clock the wolves are coaxed into howling in their habitat. A nice place to visit.

$5 to get in. Multiple trails that branch off eachother. Map is needed if unfamiliar with it. Some kids towards the beginning

Trail was well kept in most places. couple of steady uphill climbs. Nice canopy of trees for shade. Views from the top were great. Didn't climb the tower because of a couple missing steps.

Beautiful trail. well maintained. Even saw beavers and some deer that followed us on the trail. Fall is the most beautiful time here.

can be hard at times but it's worth a few hikes

Nice trail. Great views.
