Ascent Trip Report

Patty and I decided to bag a couple of firetowers before driving home. Adams was the first. This is a great little hike! Definitely challenging and a great workout and less than 5 miles round trip. The firetower itself is in the woods but as usual, the view from the top of the tower was amazing!!!! I love this challenge!!!!

We headed to Goodnow Mountain. The approach to the peak isn't as strenuous as Adams but it's a huge crescent, you feel like it's bringing you to the other side of the mountain. You reach one little peak, head down into a small valley and than reach the final peak. This is a steady climb hike, around 4 miles round trip. The tower brought absolutely amazing views, this was really a great day!!!!
