I hiked the access road to the tower. To my disappointment, the tower was locked. In the summer there are actual hiking trails, though they're poorly marked.

The view from the summit is decent, Washington and the presidential range are visible but obscured by trees, radio towers, and the fire tower. If the fire tower were open the view from inside would most definitely be fantastic. It's unfortunate that it's locked. I would only hike this again to access the tower, if it's open in the future.
