Hike to a fire tower with 360 degree views.

The trial-head for this hike had a very small parking area but there is some extra parking on down the road where you can park then walk to the start. The trail starts relatively flat with a small incline. As you go on it climbs slowly until you reach the steps that start the accent. There are about 50 steps to the top of the incline from there it is about a tenth of a mile up from there. When you get to the tower you can climb up the stairs to the top. In the winter and some of the fall the tower is closed and you can only go to the top of the stairs. Even though you can not get in the top sometimes the views are just as good from the stairs.
