This was a nice little side trail down to the water. There was an old wooden viewing ladder but I did not trust it. I already climbed the 30 foot steel tower on the tower trail.

This is a nice little side trail off the Raymond Tower Trail. About half way to the tower, look for a more primitive trail on your left. It will take you down to the water.

A nice walk with nice views at the end. About half way down on the left there is a nice birding trail.

This was my favorite out of the three tower trails.

This is a great little walk. The climax is a thirty foot lookout tower looking out over the lake. It is a nice trail all the way.

A nice walk in the woods climaxed by a 30 foot tower looking out over the lake.
