Short hike up to the old fire tower that overlooks Lake Welch and parts of Stony Point. The old ORAK mansion ruins make for an interesting waypoint along the way to (carefully) explore the walls and foundations left behind.

Hiked from Beaver Pond camping area. Short hike with ruins and really cool fire tower. We climbed the fire tower but it was a little sketchy. 106 trail back to the campsite from the fire tower was completely overgrown.
