This is place used to be in service back during the Cold War when the Nike missels on the West Coast were operational. Now it tends to serve as a meeting spot for kids who like to partake questionable activities.
The tower is at the end of a pretty long service road if you walk. However many people have figured out that the gate at the front that prevents civilian cars from entering can be opened with a simple trick. Take a cookie sheet, or a flat metal object and place it on a magnet in the road on the other side of the gate, and it will open for anyone!
Very cool area, there is a hole in the fence protecting the structure, a ladder going up the middle all the way to the top and another level near the top. The ladder is secure, however on the very top platform, there are large holes in the floor (they are supposed to be there, but idk why) that are easily over looked and can result in serious injury if one were to fall through one.
Very nice view of the county, however be careful!!
