The hike promised an interesting ending and view with the destination labeled "lookout tower." Start out on the Laurel Highlands Hiking trail and deviate left when you came across the trail/road for the fire tower. From that point it is a simple hike, about a half mile and you came to the....."Tower." All in all, a nice hike because of the vistas offered.
