We visited Austin Ridge Lookout in July 2023. Its amazing how you cannot see this tower until your practically right on top of it.

Overall the tower is in pretty good condition and as steep as I thought the stairs were they apparently dont scare others – this sure appears to be a local party spot going by the graffiti and overall condition of the tower.

One of the coolest things about this location are the rock carvings in some nearby granite boulders. We’re in the process of researching the names now to see what we can find and will share soon.
