very nice trail. great views and the fire tower is really fun to go up. it is a little sketchy going up and down the tower but worth it for the view. A must visit if you are in the area and love to hike or ride bikes.

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.
