The top of the tower is chained off... you can only climb half way up the steps... decent view... would be a lot nicer if you could get to the top.... the road getting here takes like an hour.... bumpy forest road....

Nice little trail, but took the forest road back down from the tower because we ran into some hunters on the trail coming back. Not sure if this is allowed but didn't want to get shot.

Nice trail at Conasauga lake. There are a few right in the campground. The lake loop, songbird, and this trek up to the fire tower. Pretty straightforward. First half follows a trail up, then connects to a service road for the remainder. The hard part is getting in there, because the campground sits way back in the woods, and I mean waaaay back. Once you are there I don't know why you would not hike all the trails
