Hike to Tater Knob Fire Tower

    Rate this Adventure 1 miles 200 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

    Added by Kristian Conway

    Short hike to breathtaking panoramic views of the Daniel Boone National Forest and Pioneer Weapons WMA via fire tower.

    Starting at the trailhead hikers will follow a clearly marked trail for 0.5 miles. The trail gains elevation quickly and can be strenuous. The tower is currently closed due to arson damage and is one of the few remaining in the Daniel Boone National Forest. However, the 35 foot steel structure is still accessible and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding forest. It is highly recommended that you go at sunset. However, be aware that the center of the observation decking is gone due to the fire, so caution is advised. For more information regarding the status of the structure refer to: https://www.fs.usda.gov/recare...
