Every since I was a young child I have always loved fire towers. The thrill of climbing up to the a tower and the beautiful panoramic views. Growing up in Northern Maine I had access to some pretty good ones. There are also some great ones in Southern New Hampshire.
Federall Hill Fire Tower in Milford, NH is a fun one. The trail head is located on Ponemah Hill Road in Milford. The access road is gated so you need to park nearby and walk up. It is about a half mile walk up to the fire tower. There are beautiful views of Southern NH and the Monadnock Region. Always use caution when climbing a fire tower to ensure your safety. I have observed a lot of broken glass around the area in the past. If you are bringing your dog on the trail, please use caution.
This is a good fire tower to do if you are working on your Fire Tower Quest Patch.
