From the lower parking lot to the tower and back is 7 miles. You can also drive to the base of the tower and make it a short one half mile jaunt.

Foggy in the morning so the view was hampered, but it was a beautiful walk in a historic area. Glad we did it!

Hiked just the summit for the sense of achievement to get to the top amazing view of 5 states nearly 5000 feet up, right at cloud level the day I went. The trail itself is a paved path and is switchbacks to overcome the steepness. Runs from the lot to the structure and massive panoramic viewing platforms at the top.

It's a very nice paved trail with an abundance of rhododendron and mountain laurels. It is pretty steep though!
