This story was broadcast in early 2015 as plans for the rebuilding of the Fire Tower were gaining attention.
We are not sure of the current status of the project, but we at the Raven Rocks Run are fully supportive of the Friends of Trailside Museum and Ward Pound Ridge Reservations and their efforts to rebuild the former Cross River Mountain Fire Tower.
It would be rebuilt in its old location on the Blue Trail at highest point in the park if the plans are approved.
The Friends of Trailside Museum and Ward Pound Ridge Reservation put together a brief video showing the location of the former fire tower and what the view from a re-commissioned fire tower would look like. Check the one minute video below.
The Raven Rocks Run organizers are supportive of the efforts to bring the fire tower back to its former location at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation. The race passes by this exact spot on the course and it also happens to be the highest point in the park.
Those are not Ravens on Raven’s Rock! Short video taken February 2015.
