Sadly updated this hike for the worst of reasons, the fencing off of the fire tower on Labor Day weekend.

Lots of bad info on this one – you still can access the tower, it is NOT completely closed off. However, you can only go up when the tower is actively being manned, which is during times of drought during the day.

To not be disappointed, visitors to the fire tower can call NJ Forest Fire Service Division B Headquarters to find out of the tower is manned. The number is (609) 726-9010.

Full (Updated!) review!

    Thank you, to the IDIOTS that did STUPID things which caused this to be the case! Isn’t it always the poor actions of ONE individual or group that RUINS things for everyone else?? Well, at least the tower isn’t *totally* closed off (yet), but maybe this wake-up call will prove to be prudent in curbing the disgusting behavior by others who deface the property!!

      It’s truly amazing they waited this long. I mean, someone took an excavator up there 25 years ago made a gigantic hole next to the tower while looking for treasure. People are so crazy.
