“A short trail to a unique fire tower with a great view!”— Elizabeth Paashaus
After a short way, you emerge at a rocky summit with an octagonal stone and wood fire tower. The upper level of the fire tower is an enclosed octagonal room that can be accessed through an unlocked wooden door. There is an information plaque below the tower about the history of building it.
360-degree views into eastern Tennessee and the Smokies of North Carolina can be had both from the tower and from the summit of Mt. Cammerer.
