We hiked to the top of the Elba Fire Tower on June 24th, 2022.
The Elba Fire Tower was built in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. There are 637 steps to the base of the fire tower. Thankfully there are several places to stop and rest along the way up.
The view from the base of the tower alone was worth the climb.
The Elba Fire Tower is 110 feet in the air and over 100 steps to the top.
A little butterfly offered encouragement as we climbed to the top.
The view from the top of the tower was worth every step! Such a spectacular view.
Our hiking adventure was over 700 steps straight up the bluff.
