Drove up from Minneapolis while visiting the area. Climbed the wooden tower and got a very nice view. I didn't feel up to climbing the steel tower. Stopped by the coffee shop to sign the summit register. The raspberry cream cheese pie was very good.
I stopped at Timm's while driving back to Chippewa Falls from Green Bay. Climbed up the wood tower, then walked the loop around the hill. It was a sunny day, but very windy. Not too many people in the park this day, oddly enough. This was my 2nd state highpoint, after Mt Elbert of Colorado.
Reached this one in the evening. Nice views from the tower.
Did Mt. Arvon in MI that morning. Trees are starting to block the views from the wood tower. http://www.willhiteweb.com/state_highpoint/wisconsin/timms_hill_150.htm
Hiked with my brother. Had some lovely views of the surrounding area from the top of the tower. I wish I had brought a notebook with me to leave there, since the climbers log was pretty full.
Followed excellent directions to the parking area and had a quick hike to the towers. The wooden tower provided nice views of the area, otherwise the views would have been hidden by the dense forest. Saw one other party. DEET useful this time of year.
This was a very easy peak to find, well marked on the roads. Located inside its own state park, Timms Hill had some views from the top of the observation tower. Nice to check it off our list. We drove to this, as well as Mt Arvon, MI in the same day. State HP #40......i cannot believe it, 80% of the way, WOHOOOO!!
Gorgeous area in the autumn season. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
After successfully "summitting" Illinois, I hammered the rental car north to hit Wisconsin later that same day. I left the supplemental oxygen canister in the car for the climb up the tower.
As another climber put it, this is an "unremarkable bump". All due respect given, common logic might suggest that the state/county do some site-leveling excavation work at Timm's Hill (1956 ft) so that the summit of the more dramatic/prominent and essentially equal-elevation Rib Mountain (1924 ft) becomes the state high point.
Hiked the small trail up and climbed the wooden tower. I thought about ascending the steel tower, but looked a little too precarious for me. Passed some Amish folks on the way up. Very pleasant day and experience.
Wonderful place. Stayed in the Northern Pines cabin at Bass Lake. Very peaceful. #33HP for me. With Lillian, friends John and Barb, and pups.
Nice area; first time in northern Wisconsin.
Solo trip. Drove up from Wauwatosa, WI in the morning. Beautiful day. Camped at Council Grounds State Park that evening before heading up to Mount Arvon.
Another easy HP for the family (#7.) My 13 y.o. son and 11 y.o. daughter and I climbed the radio tower for some awesome views of the Wisconsin countryside. The rest of the family climbed the wooden tower.
Afterward, we stopped in Tomahawk and ate some burgers and cheese curds at Dogs 'n Suds. Very yummy! Then we drove on to Rhinelander for the night where we learned about the legend of the Hodag! The next day we headed for the Michigan high point.
Drove the night before to near the hill summited first thing in the morning. The tower at the top was an absolute blast!!! Headed to Michingan's next.
really misty, but the tamarack were a beautiful yellow.
First of 2 HP's that day. Pretty place and a nice little park.
A beautiful, laid back area, Willl come back and make a day hiking arouund the area.
