This is a great trail. Alone it is an out and back that can be a short one or as much as a 5-7 mile out and back. The cool thing is, at this area in Snyder County, there are a lot of little bisecting trails that will allow you to do a nice loop. You can do a high skill "Tower Trial" loop or a much softer "Hemlocks Trail" loop. No matter which way you choose, depending upon the season, there will be downed trees you must traverse. This is some of the last remaining old growth Hemlock forest (State Tree).
