Nice hike to the top of the mountain and beautiful views of the area. Easy to get to and the trails are user friendly.

I recommend driving 3/4 of the way up the mountain and then taking the mile hike to the observation tower from there. The views, from the top, are beautiful and there are a lot of great spots to picnic and enjoy the views.
