Reminence of the Fire Tower

Reminence of the Fire Tower

The fire tower that once stood on Tooley Mountain was disassembled and reassembled upon Cathedral Rock in Wanakena and is dedicated to all Forest Rangers and DEC Officers... Past Present and Future.

On a clear day, the summit of Tooley Mountain offers incredible  views of the East, and Northeast from it's partially open  summit. With such great views, Tooley mountain was once home to an "Adirondack fire tower" which was used by Forest Rangers to scout the area for forest fires. Once the Fire tower was no longer needed, it was dissassembled and moved to the "Ranger School" in Wankena, where it now stands upon

"Catherdral Rock".

 

The tower's foundation is all that remains on the summit and is there to remind us of this Mountains historical role in the protection of the Adirondacks.

 

This trail is perfect for WHOLE FAMILY (year round ) expeditions, and really only receives minimal attention in the winter. Tooley Mountain certainly makes for a lovely snowshoe trip, as well as a moderate crosscountry ski destination, for those looking for something a bit more challenging during the winter months.
