Newly Opened Fire Tower Hike!
Swede Mountain Trail is an easy 1.8 mile round trip hike that can be accessed from State Route 8. This trail is unique to Warren County and is soon to be added to the ADK Fire Tower Challenge, which currently encompasses 30 trails in the Adirondack Park.
The trail starts with a stream crossing and steep embankment that settles into a gradual climb to the summit. The 47 foot high fire tower located at its summit offers panoramic views to the south and north of Gore Mountain, Crane Mountain and Brant Lake. Trailhead parking lot accommodates 15 vehicles.
*Note: The trail and tower are closed for hunting season, September 10 - December 16.
