I took the Fire Tower trail up, consistently steep and some scrambles right at the end. The view from the tower was GREAT!!! On the way down, I took the Ridge trail and it was beautiful! Lots of little rolling inclines on the way down, lots of shade from pine trees, and a few nice lookout points with big flat rocks. Next time, I might just take the Ridge trail out and back because the terrain was so fun. The Ridge trail had absolutely no mud, it was very dry and well marked, really enjoyable trail (but it is about twice as long as the FT trail)
