Meigs County Highpoint Trip Report
McMinn Ridge – Fire Tower Lane
Date: October 6, 2008
Author: Tom Owen
Other directions to this HP are adequate although I would not so much worry
about the locals. The gravel road leading to the tower is public property and
the tower is staffed periodically (some one was there when I visited).
Beautiful fall day and excellent views from the top of the tower stairs
(the tower was locked). If you approach from south-east on Highway 189,
you can easily spot the tower and clear-cut power line going up the mountain.
