Long Description:
Getting to Trigg Tower is fairly easy and well signed along the roads.

Of course, the view is spectacular. Our family visited during the hot summer months so there is a bit of a haze in our photos. I sincerely hope somebody can visit during the fall color period.

The stairs are fairly steep so watch your step. It looks daunting, but a smooth, steady pace goes by quickly (and bring some water up with you).

Parking is available right at the base of the tower.
