Climbing the tower is worth the view. Just be careful of the Bagel trail, I got lost and had to walk the whole perimeter of the forest. Otherwise it is a pleasurable forest with fun windy easy trails.

This is a pretty flat easy trail. The view from the fire tower is beautiful. I saw an eagle flying over the fields below. At one point it became pretty buggy, but it was a warm muggy day.

Fire tower makes this walk really fun. Took about 15 minutes to get to fire tower on a nice forest path. Remainder of walk took about 30 minutes. Trail got a bit narrow towards end of loop so that it was a little bothersome to have my dog on a leash.

I love the fire tower views, but this spot is beyond buggy, every single time I've gone. This is with good bug spray too!

A little buggy, but a nice walk to the fire tower. The markers for the green trail are sparse...

Nice relaxing hike. Alot of people though but it was a Sunday. Fire tower was pretty cool. Trails were all well maintained and well marked.
