This hike was very challenging in the beginning. It had a ton of rocky surfaces, but fine to navigate. We had a lot of fun and the views were amazing. I would definitely recommend keeping an even pace, staying hydrated and keep moving along.

For some reason this is my favorite hike ive ever done! Im not sure if it was the trail or if it was a beautiful day. The views are so so so amazing. Definelty recommend!

Love this quick butt kicker! The North Mountain Tower Road construction has displaced people who typically use the Tower Road off 7th St, so this Trailhead is getting pretty crowded. There are only about 20 parking spots in the lot & virtually no street parking in the neighborhood. Get there early to snag a spot or park at the Visitors Center and extend your hike a bit.
