Great views. Hike any distance you want. Hike to the tower has the best views
One of my favorite stretches of road
Beautiful ride through some amazing scenery
It was a few years ago but it was an unforgettable trip! Getting started, gearing up and dealing with permits is a pain, but once you get on the trail, it all comes together.
This is not a bad hike, just not fair to rate it higher than 3 stars considering other places that give more rewarding experiences. The hike is short and definitely kid friendly. The views from the tower are the highest on the Foothills Parkway. At the end of it all you are on a man made structure and that makes it less of a hiking experience to me. I would recommend this for a quick morning or evening stroll if you are in the area.
