The woman checking us out at the Grand Summit Hotel at Attitash gave us directions to find this 2058 high State Park with an old stone firetower. The road up is only one car wide so meeting traffic can be tricky, and lots of walkers...More

If you're in the area it's worth it! Plan to bring the family and pack a picnic. Enjoy your lunch and the great 360 views.

Easy hike up the car path. Some branching trails, but we didn't explore. We went on a rainy day and still had great views with the breaks in the clouds. Would be incredible on a clear Fall day!
