I am lucky enough to live across the street so I walk my dog up to the tower all the time it's a great piece of land to have access too. What a great view of the city and trails to walk for hours

It begins with a nice (and easy) hiking at the park, about 15 minutes walking from gate 6 in Medford, It could be a family trip, Nice historical monument, with a great view.
