Azure Mountain Friends Board met at Deer
Valley Trails on May 11 to review and begins
plans for the centennial of the fire tower.
Watch for a NEW Summit Guide, a newsletter,
and brochure. The actual centennial is July
29, 2018, but the group will launch a year
of fund-raising, to insure the future of the
tower and the AMF Scholarship Program this
summer. If anyone would like to become
involved, please contact
Located at the western edge of Franklin
County, in the town of Waverly, near the
hamlet of Santa Clara, the Azure Mountain
fire tower has been standing guard over the
northern Adirondacks since 1918.
This web site will bring you the history of
the mountain and the story of how the Azure
Mountain Friends organized in late 2001 and,
with the help of the New York State
Department of Environmental Conservation and
Americorps, saved the tower from removal.
Our thanks to the generous contributions of
all those who love the mountain, and all the
hours donated by our many volunteers.
Come visit Azure Mountain, climb the tower,
and enjoy the wonderful views. Check the Maps
page if you need directions.
