“A steep difficult trail with a gorgeous 360-degree panoramic view at the top.”— Simeon Pol
After the first steep incline, there is a scenic overlook at the site of a former cabin. The foundation still remains.
The remainder of the trail is a steep climb until the Ridge Trail junction. The fire tower is not far from the junction.
You can climb the tower to gain 360-degree panoramic views of Elmore Lake, Mansfield, and a portion of the C.C. Putnam State Forest.
