Been going to the lake my whole life and always wanted to hike this trail.... did it today!!! It is uphill to the tower and you can walk up the stairs to the first landing for a good view. The good news is it’s all downhill going back out;) It is a beautiful trail. Saw squirrels and deer. Camped 3 days at the lake. Gorgeous week!!!!

Very dissapointed in this trail. Trecking up mostly on a gravel road was very difficult for me and the view was lacking due to trees and haze due to pollen and Controlled fires happening in the area. the Tower was locked so no view.

great view of the top. make sure to park where the closed gate for the 1st camping ground for the lake is. trail is pretty much all uphill. btw it's a 1hr drive on a mountain country non paved road from the main road, watch out city folks lol

I was not aware that you are able to drive all the way to the top where the lookout was of it wasn’t chained off. But once we figured that out and started walking it was great. It was an moderate walk, not that long and once you get to the lookout it’s amazing.

Hiked Thursday, 10/26/17: This has been my favorite hike from AllTrails. it was so pleasant and was able to hike three days before it closed for Winter. There always a beautiful view at the base across a small creek and a great view from the first landing of the tower at the top.

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
