Really nice lookout tower. The hike is short but could be strenuous depending on the person. I plan on returning for a nice sunset. Really great spot for drone footage too.

For a more substantial hike, park at the bottom and walk up the road. Then go onto a trail thats about 1/2 mile and fairly steep, which takes you to the tower. Round trip that actually made it a 2.7 mile walk total. The view at the top of the tower is incredible. The elevation is actually 1,719 ft including the height of the tower.

Completed this nice easy hike in the first week of October. Foliage wasn't quite peak but the view was beautiful from the tower. Great spot for a family hike
