I'm thinking about hiking to the fire tower on Mt Tremper tomorrow. Does anyone know if the fire tower is unlocked at this time of year?

Thanks!

Very unlikely. You can still climb the tower. You just will not be able to get into the cabin. The fire towers cabins close in the Fall and open in the Spring.

Great time of year to climb Tremper. In the summer there are rattlesnakes.

Thanks for the reply. I'll keep that in mind for the future. We ended up going partway up Wittenberg, then cutting over on the Terrace Mtn trail. Nice little winter jaunt. Didn't see anyone else on the trail. Trail was a bit icy, but with micro spikes totally manageable.

Happy hiking.
