Be aware. This trail may be "easy" but to get to it, you must go on a more difficult trail. Not really much to see. Just the fireplace remains from an old house with a history marker and short write-up.

Was expecting to see a tower. what you see is the remains of a burnt building structure. Super easy trail, but you do have to hike other trails to get to the fire tower trail.

The actual Firetower Trail itself is only .4 miles one way (per Park Trails map). However, since it is only accessible from the Sulphur Springs trail, you have to hike 1.4 miles on the Sulphur Springs trail to get to the Firetower Trail. The total hike to the Firetower at the end of the trail is 1.95 miles (per my GPS), for a 3.9 mile round-trip hike. Typical trail, nice shady canopy the entire way, but little-to-no scenery.

Fairly easy trail that has little elevation change. Dogs welcome and very well groomed for bike riding. Several great scenic views and a historic landmark of an old 1940's fire tower..
