Hike to Red Hill Fire Tower
October 1, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
We will hike the recently constructed trail to the Red Hill Fire Tower on Denning Road in Claryville. The trail is a wonderful example of one that has been well thought out and well built with multiple switch backs as it gains elevation. We will have lunch on the picnic tables at the top and will climb the tower and enter the cabin, which is slated to be open and staffed by a local volunteer guide. Pace will be moderate to relaxed with plenty of stops for photos, breath catching and forest gawking.
