ADK Fire Tower Book is out!

Our book 29 Fire Tower Trails in the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains is now out. It is about the 29 remaining fire towers, all of which are part of the ADK Firetower Challenge. We did them all! You only have to do 23 to meet the “ADK Fire Tower Challenge”. In this book we have included explicit directions from Interstate highways, where to park, what you might see and what we found. We also included GPS readings and more than 60 full color photos. It’s all in our usual user friendly format. The ADK Firetower Challenge is much less than trying to become a 46’er, but a fun and rewarding challenge just the same.

2012, 129 pages, spiral bound, $19.95

You can ask for this book at your local bookstore or outfitter. Or just order it from the publisher, Common Man Books at: or call them, toll free at: 866-793-0555.
