Comments
Comments: A quick 20 minute round trip to visit this peak for the fire tower list. Besides the footings from the tower, there are MILLIONS of ants at the summit, which is covered in ant hills. I didn't stay long as they were all over my feet. Eek!

No issues along the trail except signage. At the first junction, stay left to proceed to the summit. This is a very short hike, only a few tenths round trip.
