Quick hike. Tower is closed for the season. I had no views since there were a lot of low clouds. Trail is well marked and will be back.

A good trail, well marked where it needs to be. There's a fork near the fire tower that has an option to the "spring", which I didn't know about going in. If I had I might have planned more time to check it out, but without more info I decided against checking it out.

I took my cousin and brother with me and they're young teenagers and they had a bit of a harder time including me, the uphill hike is a little rocky but the view at the top is well worth it.

Great little trail to a fire tower. Outhouse and picnic benches near the tower. Also a short side trail to a spring. You have to climb the tower for views. No views on the trail. Just a walk in the wooda.
