    Perfect hike for my husband, toddler, baby and I for Father’s Day. They have a picnic area if you want to pack a lunch and the trail is pretty easy going up and coming down. The only thing that’s difficult is having small children getting up and down the stairs of the tower.

    Great short trail for kids. Slightly uphill all the way to the tower. Great views. Lookout from the top of the tower is amazing.

    Awesome trail. I went April 1 and the road was still closed at Tetro Rock Rd. from the Deadwood side. I parked there and snowshoed it up the road to the trail head. The hike up added an extra mile or so each way. Once you get to the trail head it’s a nice loop with awesome views, an overlook, and of course the friendship tower. Excellent trail.
