This is mainly an OHV trail that some use for hiking to the firetower.

when you reach the top, Fred, or his wife, will greet you with a smile and give you a tour showing you all around the area. you have a great view of Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen. in the tower, you can see about 14 different mountain tops. there are side trails and this must be where the moderate rating comes from because the road to the top is a dirt road, but never dropped it into 4x4 until we crossed over on some of the side trails. great fun though!
