Fire Towers in the Catskill Park are Open for the Season
The Catskill Fire Tower Project is looking forward to the 2012 season! The fire towers on top of Balsam Lake Mountain, Hunter Mountain, Mount Tremper, Overlook Mountain, and Red Hill will be staffed by volunteer interpreters on weekends from Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day. While hikers can climb the stairs to the top landings of the towers at any time--interpreters open the cabs at the top of the towers so you can enjoy the view from inside.
Mount Tremper, Hunter Mountain and Balsam Lake Mountain had training sessions last Saturday for new volunteers. We are thankful to have so many new volunteers this year, and glad it was such good weather for the training day (this photo is of the Mount Tremper volunteers during the training on Saturday).
We all look forward to greeting a lot of visitors to the towers through the course of the summer.
