Brown County State Park: Fire Tower Trail (Trail 10) Professional Review and Guide

"The Fire Tower Trail starts on Weed Patch Hill, Brown County State Park’s highest point, and follows a ridge behind the fire tower, passing a Civilian Conservation Corps shelter before dropping into a hollow and looping back on an adjacent ridge. The trail offers hikers the opportunity to experience a rugged trail without investing too many miles."

Great experience with the family. Plenty of area to rest along the trail and lots of challenges as well.

We hiked Trail 10 starting at the Fire Tower. The trail was very muddy and still had some ice in places. The description of the trail on the park map is "Rugged, (2.2 miles)—Follows ridge behind fire tower before looping northward crossing deep ravines and hilltops. Passes CCC shelter." The shelter is a building with three walls and one open side that looks out over the forest. Two of the walls of the shelter have a window and the third wall houses the fireplace. There is a picnic table in the shelter as well. Even in January, we passed quite a few people on this trail. It was a nice trail though. After hiking the trail, I climbed the firetower and took some photos from there. I will upload some photos of the trail and the tower.
