Just wanted to add this here.. a little description for the added trail map with the trail highlighted in pink. MOST RECENT TRAIL MAP DESCRIPTION: the mileage after the point labeled parking is not accurate, it is 4.5 miles to the tower. but you can drive the 3 miles from mckeever lot to the area labeled "parking" in white box. the southern trail that is parallel to the pink trail and eventually connects DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE. You can also drive most of the way to the lake lean-to. It is a 0.5 mile hike to the lean-to and there is also a second lean-to that can be looked up online for the specific location. Please do some research before heading to hike to this tower. It is a bit confusing.
