Hike to Tater Knob Fire Tower



1 miles

Elevation Gain

200 ft

Route Type


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...
