The Pillsbury Mountain fire tower has an interesting history – first made of wood in 1918, it was rebuilt out of steel not much later in 1924. Pillsbury will reward you reward with a peaceful trail, expansive views, and just the right amount of tranquility!
On a cool and crisp early November morning, we began our trek on the 3.8-mile trail up Snowy Mountain. At 3,899 ft., Snowy is a challenging climb. The first part of the hike is an enjoyable walk in the woods, much of it along (or in!) a pretty mountain stream.
