Mount Arab Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A short, kid-friendly hike to a restored fire tower and fire
watcher’s cabin, with lake views in every direction. Mount Arab is a perfect hike for young children and other inexperienced hikers.

There is a big reward—climbing the fire tower—for relatively little effort, as the rate of ascent ranges from hardly detectable to moderate. One eight-year-old rated the hike a 9 out of 10, deducting one point because he got a couple of bug bites and because there were a few slippery spots."

"A short climb leads to a fire tower overlooking the lakes and hills in the Cranberry and Horseshoe lakes wild forests."

"This short, kid- friendly hike goes to a restored ?re tower and ?re-watcher’s cabin, around which the summer caretaker has created a hummingbird sanctuary. The tower provides lake views in every direction.
