New Hampshire Fire Tower List

Fire towers have been protecting New Hampshire for over a century, and despite advances in technology the New Hampshire Division of Forests & Lands still operate fifteen fire towers today.

We've compiled a list of fire towers located throughout the state of New Hampshire. Darker icons identify bridges for which we've included a photograph and often a link to a Trailspotting trail review. Note that we've not yet visited all fire towers on this list and cannot confirm whether they are publicly accessible.

We've excluded fire towers that can simply be driven to and are not accessible by a notable trail.
