This Week’s Program:
Check out one of New Hampshire’s 15 fire towers on the Fire Lookout Tower Quest Program from the NH Division of Forests and Lands on a 4.5 mile hike to the summit of Red Hill. We will hike up via the Eagle Cliff trail, explore the fire tower and eat lunch at the summit, then hike back down. If you are following the Tower Quest, the Red Hill Fire Tower counts toward your certificate!
