Nice steep hike at the beginning, levels out and transitions from hard to moderate. Great views.

The beginning of the trail is all up. After that, the climb is steady creating a moderate trail. The views after the first climb are great. If you get to the top when the tower is open, the 360 degree views are worth it along with a little history lesson as you work your ways through the floors. The staff was very friendly when I was there.

The beginning of the trail to the tower is steep but levels out. There's a beautiful view after the steep incline so it is definitely worth it. The tower was closed when we went there so we didn't get to look inside but there is a museum and gift shop. Highly recommend the trail if you like a beautiful view up high and a touch of history as well.
