The fire tower is still there however it is in need of repair. Bath County Tourism is attempting to raise fund to refurbish the tower.

Nice short hike. There was an old fire tower at the top but alas a pair of jerks set it ablaze several years back. Unfortunately the top can be a little trashy from the lazy people to sorry to pack out their trash. It is located in the primitive weapons area of the forest so be careful during deer hunting season.
