Fire towers are one of the most iconic structures in the Adirondack Park, and the 34 that remain on top of various peaks serve as beacons to hikers far and wide. A handful of the historic towers - which date back to the 1900s - have been restored and opened to the public, including the 35 foot high tower on Hurricane Mountain.

The Friends of Hurricane Mountain have worked diligently to prevent the tower from being torn down and to rehabilitate it so it could once again be enjoyed by hikers. Now, the group is looking for volunteers to help spread the word about this historic landmark.
