  • 30-40 Min hike depending on trail and ability. Orange trail is faster/steeper with 'seasonal' views of CT& Dutchess landscape. The Blue trail is more gentle but slower/longer. TAKE THE BLUE TRAIL...  more »
  • Take the kids or out of town friends. 30 minutes hike to tower and then the climb. Reward is the view. Advise not to go in windy or rainy day.  more »
  • Nice, short but steep hike. Very rewarding views. Path is not well marked or maintained, but you can still figure out where to go. Decent size parking lot.
  • This steep hike led to breathtaking views atop the fire tower. Great exercise getting up there and highly rewarding! We’re decent hikers and it took us ~2 hours round trip. Definitely recommend!
