Trail shared by Andrew Wereley

Short trail to mountain summit with fire tower.

Features Fall Colors · Views

Description

Trail climbs steadily through hardwood forest. Difficult areas are improved with steps constructed from rocks or wood. At the summit is a century old fire tower which you can climb. In the tower cab are signs pointing out the names of nearby peaks. There is also a caretaker's cabin. It is sometimes manned by a docent and has artifacts on display from when the tower was active.

The trail and structures are maintained by the Friends of Mt. Arab.
