Short hike. Rocky in some areas but overall not bad. Decent views from the tower.

Hiked as part of the Skys the limit challenge. Nice hike to the tower and the views were really good worth the hike to see. Hit up a few geocaches along the way. Good times I would visit again.

Great little trail, footing is somewhat rocky and some of the trail can be challenging and uneven, but the tower view is worth the hike. I hike with my dog and he had no difficulty with the trek. There is a swimming area for people and the dogs can cool off outside that designated area. unfortunately there is a $6 fee for entry to the park every day of the week (some state parks charge only on the weekends).
