ADK Fire Tower Challenge

The Glens Falls-Saratoga Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club awards a patch to finishers of the ADK Fire Tower Challenge.  To complete this challenge, hikers must climb and document ascents of at least 23 from a menu of 30 eligible fire towers.  This total must include at least 18 of the 25 Adirondack fire towers, plus all five Catskill fire towers.  Climbing the actual fire tower is not required, and in some cases is not allowed, but where permissible, is ever so much fun.  Trip reports from my hikes of these trails are linked in the table below.
