Goes through dense woods but the view from the firetower is nice (unless you have a fear of heights.) Missed the other half of the loop after reaching the firetower, and accidentally took the Tower Trail to Hogback Mountain.

Great, short hike. View from fire tower is stunning! A little steep at some points, but nothing too hard!!

We've hiked this trail in both winter and summer. In winter it was pretty icy which added to the challenge and the fun but we both slipped on our bums once so snowshoes and/or ski poles aren't a bad idea. The old abandoned ski buildings and lifts are really cool and make this relatively easy hike unique, offering a chance to walk though modern ruins. In the late summer we climbed the tower and watched the sun set...which I strongly suggest! From the tower the 360 views are great and photo-worthy. Bring headlamps if you're thinking of a sunset hike, they will be quite useful on the way down.

Trail was nice lots of fall colors. The description given was very accurate in both elevation and length. However, the view from the fire tower makes the hike.

I remember how quiet this state park was, and the trail to the fire tower was a perfect distance for the kids. Camping was available. Check out my write up with pictures and some other things to look out for.

It's a nice trail with a fairly easy difficulty as you ascend to the peak. Great views from the fire tower. We camped in Molly Stark so it was nice to walk down the road and onto the trail. The tower is close to the 100 mile scenic overlook so you can get the same view. We are looking forward to doing this again.

Steady incline with a few level patches. Interesting rock formations. There is no vista at the top--you have to climb the tower for the view. Lovely 360 of the area. Nice trek through the woods.

Pretty steep at parts but my 63 year old father with slight COPD made it up with no problem. About a 35 minute hike up and a spectacular view at the top of the fire tower, which is nice and sturdy!
