if your doing this trail it's rocky in some spots but you can also get to to fire tower by using the access roads along back of property. it's easier to come down that way.

really nice park, good trail/path conditions, moderate difficulty, great views from the top of the fire tower, if you don't mind heights. be careful climbing stairs, they have some sketchy ones.

$5 to get in. Multiple trails that branch off eachother. Map is needed if unfamiliar with it. Some kids towards the beginning

Trail was well kept in most places. couple of steady uphill climbs. Nice canopy of trees for shade. Views from the top were great. Didn't climb the tower because of a couple missing steps.

haven't been hiking since 1999. Good trail to start. Rain was rolling in so there was a lot of wind while climbing the tower. Awesome view though.

This was a great hike and the view from the fire tower is amazing! The trip up was a little harder than I expected but it was well worth it. The fire tower is not for people who are afraid of heights and it is a little rickety when climbing!

Very strenuous hike, but the view at the top is well worth it. One of my favorite hikes of the area.
