Lightbulb Loon Lake Mountain - update

Update: Loon Lake Mountain included in the Fire Tower Challenge

Effective November 2, 2011 Loon Lake Mountain in the northern Adirondacks is included in the Fire Tower Challenge and counts toward the 18 Adirondack fire towers. If you have a brochure that does not list this fire tower, please manually add it to the list along with the date of your climb in order to receive credit for this tower.

If you climbed it before November 2, 2011, but after the easement was open to the public, does it still count?

November 2, 2011 is the date the ADK Glens Falls-Saratoga (keepers of the FTC) formerly added Loon Lake Mt. to the FTC.

No updates on the Loon Lake Mountain tower restoration. We are currently taking inventory of work being done by all the fire tower friends groups.
