“An nice downhill trail from the McGaffey Lookout Tower.”— Bill Siebersma
This trail is situated in high rolling hills covered with open Ponderosa forest and Gambel Oak groves. When reversed, Mikes Rippin' Trail is a challenging climb. A faint two track crosses this trail about a half mile down from the Tower, take care to stay on the singletrack trail.
Note that when the tower is crewed, polite visitors have been invited "aboard" for a viewing. Otherwise, please stay away from the tower.
