Description

A visit to the Kane Mountain Fire Tower will treat hikers to one of the better views I have seen from a fire tower. However, you'll NEED to climb the fire tower to see the view, so if you are afraid of heights then it is not a gem! The fire tower is sturdy and the bottom portion of the railing has a metal grid covering it all the way to the top. What makes it so scenic is the 360-degree view (there are no bad viewpoints) with close proximity to three lakes surrounding it and a cabin below.

Short Hike: The fire tower can be accessed from either Kane Mountain East Trail or Kane Mountain North Trail.

Family Friendly: Great views and the bottom of the railing is fully covered in a metal grid all the way to the top...definitely only for those who are not afraid of heights though.
