Love this hike! It's easy and straightforward and the views are amazing!

Nice Hike up to the Fire Tower. Some Great views of Mt. Pisgah. Hiking a road all the way in.

fast down. hit speeds up to 30mph. plenty of room to see people coming

haha, Todd. yes, this is meant for downhill mountain biking.

Very nice short hike and kid friendly. Forest service tower half way with terrific views. Loved it.

Nice trail that runs by the French Broad river but poorly marked. If you turn left and go by a trailer, turn around and go back bc otherwise you will end up off-trail hiking it.

Frying pan! Been visiting this spot for years, and can always expect beautiful views from the trail and tower. The top is locked because I'm pretty sure the Forest Service still uses this tower.
But none the less, it's worth the mile and a half!

Great trail, well maintained. Very easy gradual switchbacks take you to Parkway and MTST.
