Federal Hill Fire Tower

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.
