This was a nice, moderate, hike, however, when we went in late May, the flies were TERRIBLE. Do not go here without bug spray. About the hike: there is a brook running through, you see some small waterfalls, the hiking is not very steep, except near the top, and it smells like Christmas trees! The sign at the trailhead suggests 4 hours. Due to being eaten alive by flies the whole time, we did not stop for any breaks, and we were up and down in about 3 hours. I wish we would have brought bug spray and would have been able to enjoy it a little more by going more slowly and taking breaks. The view at the top of the fire tower is awesome. It was cold and windy up there, but there were no flies!
