History

A fire tower was originally built here by the CCC in 1941 with a 20-foot wood frame. In 1963 they replaced that tower with this current 30-foot steel tower. If you look around the base you can still find the footings for the 1941 tower. The current tower is closed to the public and only put in service when needed. While the site is considered historic this newer tower is not old enough to be classified yet as such. Please be respectful of this historic site with its current tower so as to keep this trail open to the public.
