JESMOND FIRE LOOKOUT
The Jesmond Fire Lookout recreation site is a former fire lookout tower built in the early 1970’s to aid with detecting forest fires.
The Jesmond Fire Lookout tower is located on a very exposed ridge, at an elevation of about 1980 meters, and winds in excess of 120 km/h have been recorded.
PLEASE USE CAUTION IF DECIDING TO GO – it is recommended to walk or ride the majority of this trail, rather than drive given the poor road conditions.
