We've located all fire towers known to be still standing in New England, mapped and categorized them based on the interests of trail users. Click on the map icons for links to trails that access many of the towers. Select a state from the buttons above the map for lists, coordinates, directions and trail review links. Consider following Trailspotting to be notified as we add new trail reviews.

Some fire towers are safe to climb, though you're likely to find the cabin atop the towers locked. Please respect locked gates and posted signs and do not climb any fire tower that may be unsafe.

We use our own on-the-ground data where available, supplemented by desktop reviews of aerial imagery. Sometimes we're also informed by other sites including the site of the Forest Fire Lookout Association. We cannot guarantee location accuracy of items on this map, nor can we confirm which towers are publicly accessible. We welcome feedback to improve our maps.
