Join Parkway rangers at 10:00 am on Friday, June 24th for a moderate 1.5-mile round-trip hike to the Fryingpan Fire Tower. The group will look for summer wildflowers on the way up and learn more about the history of the tower and the life of a fire lookout. Climb the stairs for stunning 360 views!

Meet at the Fryingpan Trail pullout at MP 409.6, 1 mile south of the Pisgah Inn. Park at the gravel Forest Service Road, but don’t block the gate.

Bring water, wear good walking shoes, and be prepared for changeable weather.
