| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||Car|
| Elevation:||1313 ft / 400 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFrom MO-34, approximately 11 miles E of Piedmont or 3 miles W of US-67, I turned N on MO-143. Zero or note your odometer at this point. At 3.7 miles I entered Sam A. Baker State Park. At 5.2 miles on the L is gravel Fire Tower Rd. A park sign on the locked gate says authorized vehicles only and permits foot travel. There was plenty or room to park at the turnoff without blocking the gate.
I hiked up the gravel road, which gains 900 feet to the summit. The lookout tower is on the R side of the road and inside a solid wooden fence with a locked door. The highest ground is probably a rock behind the tower fence. Wooded, no views.
