Description

This trail is well named in that it takes you to a fire tower. The fire tower can be climbed to get some great views above the trees in the center of Sterling Forest.You can start from either side of the trail or take the Fire Tower Connector. I recommend using the trail to create a loop through the forest (for example Sterling Forest Fire Tower Loop). The trail leads up into the forest and largely goes around the hills rather than over, aside from the hill the fire tower is on. You'll pass some marshes as well.
