    The tower is cool to check out, I can't argue with that, there's a lot of cool history that you can read about throughout the tower. I was not prepared for the demanding walk up to the tower however. ...  more »

    This is a great short hike for almost all ages. If you can hike, do it! In the spring it may be a bit muddy, so wear good shoes. In the summer, the view may be hazy. In the fall, the trees are a riot ...  more »

    Easy 40 minute hike to the tower. Gorgeous vantage points along the trail. Good for an early cool summer morning hike. Expect to see a good number of people if you plan to go in the afternoon on weekends.

    Great local trail. You can sneak your dogs off leash up the blue trail since foot traffic is low there. Yellow trail is easy for non-hikers.

    We saw a lot of cars at the parking lot, but were surprised to not see nearly as many folks on the trail as we would have expected. The hike starts off quite steep, but the majority of it is quite casual and relaxing. Beautiful 360 views of the valley and picnicking areas up top at the tower for use.

    We had a blast! What an amazing view too. Beginner at hiking and almost kept going by when I seen how far the tower was in the mountain. So greatful I did it!

    Beautiful park at which to go for a hike. And there is an incredible view of the city from the top of the tower! Absolutely gorgeous place :)
