Short in length, but still a good workout! Warm on the trail but breezy and cool in the tower. Boots were fine, just be careful in the wet snow that still remains near the summit. Beautiful views of the high peaks in the distance.

HikingGreat!MuddySnow

4/2/2021 The trail had an 1-2 inches of new snow from the day before. A few wet areas but the trail is not in bad shape. I used micro spikes on the way down for additional traction. We had the mountain and tower to ourselves, only ones there. Steady climb took us 45 minutes up. Views are breathtaking.

Great hike. A little bit muddy, not many potholes. No need for snow shoes or crampons.

Had a good time. Still a lot of snow, and very slippery. We didn’t make it to the top, but are amateurs lacking proper equipment for these trail conditions.

This one is a real calf burner in the snow! Even with spiked snowshoes and poles I was slipping frequently, and had to take a lot of breaks on the way up. Beautiful views at the top though, even today when the snow obscured a lot of it. AWD is useful on the way in. All the roads are plowed, but there is enough snow on them to be a bit slippery.

Short but steep, packed out trail as of today. Fire tower cab open and gives amazing views all the way around but also amazing views from a lookout below. Because of the steady incline up, it is fantastic butt sledding down to the bottom!

Great trail. Hard to really say though because it was covered in snow! The giant rock/cave cluster was a fun surprise on the way up. Lora of snow and ice, wear spikes or you won’t make it. Gorgeous views from the top in multiple locations

HikingGreat!

The trail was in great shape and I really enjoyed this hike. There were so many leaves off of the trees and covered the trail. The fire tower that stands at the summit was the highlight with awesome views in all directions. Interestingly there are two large piles of rocks that lies beneath the tower. It appears that they have been placed there over time. Another highlight was a deer I saw just outside of the parking area. I wish I had known about this trail sooner when the leaves were at their peak of color.

The entire trail was beautiful with the autumn leaves. The beginning was a treat then it got hefty the slope increased so bring a stick!! Overall, the view is veryyy worth it, with the firetower as a major plus!!

As soon as we started up the trail, it started to rain. By the time we got to the top, the rain had stopped. Even with the cloud cover, the view was still amazing. Coming down was difficult - very steep and hard on the knees!
