This is a great trail to run. Decent dirt truck road that can become challenging when running at some points. Great workout if you're looking for a 1-2 hour run. Certainly not a hiking spot. This is basically just good for running. And maybe biking, but I don't have a mountain bike. Beautiful views at the top!

What can I say? It’s a fairly steep boring maintenance road up to the towers. Their are much nicer trails up to this route. It is a fantastic view from the top.
