Fire Tower is a short, incredibly steep trail up to the South Mount fire tower. If you're looking for the straightest route up to avoid the South Ridge trail, this is it. But be prepared to suffer (if you can even stay on your bike). The trail itself is a straightforward doubletrack without much interest/technicality.
