Ascent Trip Report

1.5 miles to the trail junction for the lookout tower and 3.3 miles to the tower from there.
On the way down, at the col, break from the trail and it's an easy half mile walk to the true summit with only a couple of hundred feet of gain.

Worthwhile side trip from the tower with a nice peak and good views.
