Never disappoints! Moderate difficulty, however, hands down the best views. Did the long loop which was supposed to be 8.5 miles but a couple of wrong turns made it a 14 mile affair! Have to admit AllTrails came to the rescue. Remember - red, yellow, blue, white, yellow and red back to the stairs.

Pretty fun hike, if you come down from the fire tower and follow yellow trail, be advised that at times it is difficult to locate. You'll come to a point where you can make a left and follow the blue trail or right and continue on the yellow... make sure you follow the blue trail till it becomes white!!! There are some awesome waterfalls on this route but the majority of the views will be on the red trail leading up to the fire tower.
