Meigs County Highpoint Trip Report

McMinn Ridge Fire Tower Lane

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.
