Nice trail. Undulating Hills that are just difficult enough to get your heart rate up a bit. Fire tower has steep narrow steel steps. Don’t look down!

Great views from top of tower!

Super quick to do the yellow loop to the fire tower (which you must climb cuz the views are stunning). Not much of a workout but fun and well-marked!
