Need to Know

This downhill run can be shuttled by taking Route 19 west to 438, then 477 to the top of Mount Noble where the start of the trail resides.

Description

Fire Tower starts in the main parking lot directly across from the trail kiosk and the start of Tinker's Dream. This trail is intended for use by hikers and emergency / work ATVs but it can be ridden as well.

The trail connects to Uktena, Kessel Run and Spearfinger on the way up to the top of Mt. Noble. The trail is incredibly steep so most riders will avoid using this trail to climb, but it can be used to reduce the distance of both the Uktena and Spearfinger climbs to the top.
