It's a short trek up to the fire tower. Avoid the horse poop and you'll be good. Views are great!

One of many wonderful trails in the Tippacanoe River State Park. This is a short trail and is mostly a climb up hill, it also intersects with a gravel horse trail. The terrain is easy to traverse, but will be difficult for anyone who is handicapped. At the end, is the state park's fire-tower, and if you traverse the 90 some odd steps, 93 feet in the air you will be treated to an absolutely amazing view of your surroundings but you'lle need a good pair of legs and be unafraid of heights to do it. Good for exorcising because of the steep climb, but I wouldn't recommend it for someone looking to spend all day hiking.
