very nice trail.... thought it was more moderate than intermediate... then reached a steep area at the end.... that made it intermediate. great views!

Nice hike. A lot easier than I anticipated. It was mostly really clean and wide trail.

Nice hike for families, went on a weekday and had lots of time alone on the trail. Hike to the tower was challenging for my 6-year-old (coming from sea-level) but she made it and the views were stunning!

We completed this section of the park with our four and six year old. They really dug the 'castle ruins' and we saw a lot of wildlife. Even on a Sunday morning with the parking lots full and many families on the trail we still ended up with some quiet stretches where we were alone. The hardest part for our youngest was the climb to the fire tower, but he made it and the views from up there were amazing! We had a picnic at the Eagle Eye Shelter before we made our way back down.
