What a lovely walk in the pines! Flat with two climbs and plenty of water for the pup in the first half. We went during fire season so the tower was open and the fire watcher was happy to chat!

Went here thinking you can climb the tower, you can't, it's locked up with signs of "Keep Out" & "Violators Will Be Prosecuted". Also "signs" for "Security Camera Surveillance" but I did not see any cameras myself. The highlighted red trail on the All Trails map is not accurate to actual accessible trails. The car ride to the staring point took you past the trail which made no sense to me. Can be a fun trail if you prep and plan ahead and don't put all your faith in All Trails for guidance.

P.S. This is deer tick country in warm and summer months, so prepare yourself, dogs and loved ones with tick repellent!

Be careful when you park because our gps brought us to a sand path in the middle of the woods. Luckily we did not get stuck but another group of hikers did. Not exactly kid friendly. The watch tower is filled in with graffiti and curse words. But awesome view from the top if you are brave enough to walk up!!

Took the batona trail from carranzo memorial, out and back. Great hike, even in winter. The lookout tower was a nice treat.

Pretty clear day, climbed up the tower but was locked. Hung out, was still able to see AC and Philly which was cool. Would love to see at night. Anyone know if you can camp or does patrol come around at night?
