Family Friendly Though some portions of the trail are steep, this is the easiest way to reach the summit, and the trail is wide enough to hike multiple across.

Description

This trail is completely comprised of a doubletrack gravel road that leads from the parking lot up to the tower. Keep an eye out for some moderately steep sections on the way up. From there, you can traverse some minor rocks to get to the peak.
