Beautiful view, steep uphill the whole way

great view.....long hike up

If this is the fire tower trail, agree with prior poster. Trail is basically a gradual incline road to a very nice overlook. Climbing the fire tower was the most adrenaline induced part of the hike. Great pics!

easy walk, beautiful view, fire tower n lots of rocks

Worth all five stars in my book for the view at the top. It truly is one of the best -- maybe in Maryland. The trail up is unremarkable, mostly grass covered. Fairly steep grade, but not the steepest -- just a steady work out about a 1/10th of a mile in for the remainder of the trip. Absolutely gorgeous with leaves down as the views are great on the way up. BUT the rocks -- stunning!!
