Completed on 22 May 20. About 3000ft of elevation gain (round trip), with about 2500ft of that being the trip to the tower, the remaining climb was on the return.
There was a good flowing stream approximately 1.5 miles in, but no other signs of water.
Plenty of areas to setup a tent for an overnight, but fire restrictions will be almost continuous.
The fire tower is closed, with the first two sections of steps removed. It’s easily climbable and worth the view. (The tower is closed and should not be entered)
