Beautiful 360 view when you reach the top of the observation tower. Well worth the short uphill hike to the top.

Did tourist trip on this one did not have time to hike entire trail, Nice short hike from parking lot to first look out and than up to tower look out, Great view , will be beautiful in a couple of weeks when leaves start to turn.

Short walk with over 190 steps, but spread out over half mile except for the last 54 steps to the tower. Some great views of the surrounding Porcupine State Park as well as of Lake Superior. There's also a 4.5 loop that continues on but steep grade for the experienced hiker.
