I love Elmore. I've hiked this mountain as a kid and now as an adult. It was really buggy this year for some reason but still an amazing and beautiful hike!

Perfect day for a hike, great view of the lake from the top of the tower. I'd definitely recommend going up the fire tower trail for a moderate climb then down ridge trail for a leisurely descent if you're planning on doing the loop.

Glorious day today for a hike. The view from the top of the fire tower was as good as it gets. The rock ledge near the top proved to be somewhat challenging to get up but it's not a very large section.

Highly recommend going up the shorter but steeper fire tower trail and then descending the ridge trail for a nice climb followed by a more leisurely hike. Rocky crevasses just before the Balancing Rock off to the right of the trail are quite dramatic. Encountered a mink feeding on a chipmunk as well as some bear tracks and scat.
