Fire Towers of New Hampshire

.
   ME   NH   VT  ExpandMap 


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 that can still be visited today. We're also providing links to our fire tower trail reviews as they become available. Note that we've not yet visited all fire towers on this list and cannot confirm whether they are publicly accessible.

We've separated from our list the fire towers that are drive-up accessible only and can't be reached via trail; those are included at the bottom of the page and identified on the map in grey.
