Easy 0.8 mile RT hike on a wide access road to a firetower with a nice view. At 1840 feet, Belfry Mountain is a short hike (0.35 miles) to a summit of only 1840 feet but it offers a great view. The trail consists of a service road that is used for the communications tower at the top and the firetower.

Easy, short walk up a gravel road. You can climb the tower which has beautiful views. If your in the area you should take a few minutes and check it out. Parking is roadside across from the trail, small sign posted at entrance.

Not a hike. I did this a month after having my hip labrum repaired and I was on crutches.
Do this if you are working towards your firetower badge. Otherwise do yourself a favor and pick a slightly challenging hike for far better views and more hiking effort/fun.

Great sunset. Just a short walk up a gravel road and you're there.

If you're in the area and want a quick stop this hike is definitely a cool place to go. It's quick, easy, and it's on a gravel road. Beautiful sights at the top of the fire tower.

Climbed up the fire-tower steps around dusk and although the hike is on a gravel road and not enjoyable at all, I loved the view from the top. I liked looking into Vermont's Green Mountains and also enjoyed doing a altitude comparison with the water tower that was to the north. I also liked looking out at the small town with the sky turning all shades of pink and purple. Hard to beat the effort to payoff ratio here.

Incredibly easy! Google maps are horrible sometimes, when you get off 87 and onto Tracy road, follow it to a stop sign and take the left on Dalton something road/ County Route 70. The parking area is up ahead shortly on the right. Again, very easy.
