Bill’s Trail is closed but the fire tower is still accessible from Barnabe Road which starts at the same trailhead. It’s a 6 mile out-and-back. Beautiful sunshine, rolling hills on either side, and a little off-trail is the grave of Samuel P Taylor! Steep at times, it’s just uphill then down and so worth it for the views. Went on a Friday morning and didn’t see a single person the whole time.
