For the investment, this hike has a high payout. The hike is so short, and while it does climb up a bit, you're already at the top before you know. I'd still say it's an easy hike. You have to climb the fire tower! Very clearly marked and there is even another map at the fire tower. I went up late afternoon which was great.

The first half of the trail is straight up the mountain only using rocks and roots for footing.. moderate to difficult for some. 2nd half was easy and a beautiful hike. Totally worth the hard work first half.

The easy raring was misleading, short, moderate trail. Breathtaking views from the tower.

It should be noted, there is a park fee payable to access this hike (parking at Molly Stark State Park). We arrived late day to hike, unfortunately with no cash . Will try again another time.

Very well maintained loop and the views from the firetower were great! 75 minutes round trip not including a stop at the tower.

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.
