Trail shared by Vinnie Connors

An extremely steep, wide singletrack trail that climbs all the way to the top of Mt. Noble.

Description

Fire Tower starts in the main parking lot directly across from the trail kiosk and the start of Tinker's Dream. This trail is intended for use by hikers and emergency / work ATVs but is occasionally accessed by mountain bikers, too.

The trail connects to Uktena, Kessel Run and Spearfinger on the way up to the top of Mt. Noble. The trail is incredibly steep but it can be used to reduce the distance of both the Uktena and Spearfinger climbs to the top.
