Comments
Comments: This was a trip to walk the rechristened and renamed Tower Loop Trail, which replaces the former loop which was comprised of two different trails. The western half of the loop also has a brand new 0.2 mi. relocation which swings around the site where the landowner is building a house at the base of the mountain. On the eastern side, the trail also crosses a new private road leading to the house. A detailed description of what is going on is available at the trailhead kiosk, which has been moved to block off the relocated portion. Aside from the relocation, this loop trail follows the same route as the old one.

Mainly damp trail today from morning rains. Not too many views from the ground this time of year, you need to climb the fire tower.
