Adirondack Fire Towers Directory


The last of the observers left their fire towers after 1990.  Many towers were abandoned, burned and removed.  Once recorded were 69 towers around the Adirondacks and Catskills.  Today, reports of only 28 left.  The below eight towers have been restored to public use and safety.  Please respect the restoration project and plan your day's hike carefully and with safety rules in mind at all times.  Brochures are available at the trailheads.  Be sure to bring your best camera!
