The first kilometer is a little steep, but the view from the fire tower is worth the effort.

This short steep trail leads to a fire tower with an incredible view. It is well worth any trouble it takes to get there. Check out my full write up which includes things to look out for.

Great trail. Very steep and rocky. Trail was flooded due to all the rain we recently had, but still beautiful.

Pretty easy hike up to the fire tower, a little steep at certain points but all in all pretty moderate . It was very cloudy when I went so I didn't get too much of a view . The fire tower is very cool the hike itself is alright.
