BOOK YOUR TRIP
Azure Mountain

One of the best fire tower peaks, Azure Mountain has a sweeping view of the Adirondack Mountains and the St. Lawrence Valley, even without climbing the tower. The Friends of Azure Mountain sometimes have a volunteer interpreter in the tower to answer questions. The tower was built in 1918 and recently restored. The climb is short but steep.

Parking: From Saranac Lake, follow Route 86 to Paul Smiths. At the intersection with Route 30 in Paul Smiths, turn right and make a quick left on Keese Mills Road. Follow that for about 6 miles to where it swings right and becomes Blue Mountain Road. This road is a bit rough but scenic for about 9 miles as it approaches the trailhead on the left, 1.5 miles north of the bridge over the St. Regis River.

Distance: 1 mile to the summit

Elevation: 2,518 feet
