Photograph the Maynardville Fire Tower

444 Fox Hunter Road - Search Nearby - Added by Jared Beeler

Beautiful 360 degree view of the Tennessee Valley and this spot is great for sunset and sunrise.

The maynardville fire tower is one that anyone can go too since you can drive straight to the base of it. From the base however there are about 100 steep stairs to the top. On the way up you will need to be extra careful because it is very old and was never built for safety. When you get to the top there are a few good platforms to stand on. The top of the fire tower or the cab is however locked and can not be accessed.

This fire tower is owned by the Department of Forestry so it is completely legal to go to from sunrise to sunset. Please be courteous to the neighbors and other visitors to the tower and do not play any loud music. 

The location of this tower is pretty rural therefore there may be animals in the road so watch out and be careful.
