Fire Tower Trail is the first trail built in the park for mountain bike access. This trail is a true singletrack experience. You won't find any jumps and or drops, but you will find some narrow trail, along with a few rock gardens, and plenty of roots. This trail is fun in either direction as it is used to connect the campground to the Fire Tower parking area. On this trail it is not uncommon to cross day hikers from the campground. Additionally this trail gains access to the Adventure Trail 1.2miles from the Fire Tower parking area.
