Fire Tower Hikes

The only fire tower hike I have been on is St Regis Mountain. I hiked this a few years ago and even without the tower there was a great view. How many mountains are there in the Adirondacks have fire towers? I know there was talk about removing the one from Mt Adams does anyone know if it is still there and if so how much longer it will be there?

I'm not sure if it's the ADK Mtn. Club or another group that has a patch you can obtain for climbing all the firetowers in the Adirondacks. Some guidelines apply, and there are definately some great views from a lot of them. I may have found the info at Adirondack Life..... not to sure. Anyway, I've been up Hadley and it was really windy and it was extremely unsettling to be on the tower in whipping winds . But either way it was fun. I believe there is also a book about the firetowers of the Adirondacks as well. If you find out anything let us know, I'll look around to find out that info.

Martin Podskoch published an interesting and well-researched history of the fire towers of the southern half of the Adks. last year and he is working on the northern book now. There was too much information for just one book. Here is a link to part of the introduction and how to buy it.
