The 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 us.

donate azure mountain friends

The Azure Mountain Friends are embarking upon a year of fundraising, to celebrate the Centennial of the Fire Tower. It was erected on July 29, 1918 and we plan to celebrate on July 29, 2018. So MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

Help us start from the ground and 'climb and color the tower' until we reach the top and can turn our American flag red, white and blue, meeting our goal of $35,000! We have new CENTENNIAL PATCHES too!

The funds raised will help the Azure Mountain Friends continue the programs they have been doing since 2002:

PROTECT THE TRAIL & SUMMIT ENVIRONMENT
CONTINUE TO FUND OUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
HAVE VOLUNTEER "SUMMIT STEWARDS" ON THE MOUNTAIN
DO ROUTINE TOWER & TRAIL MAINTENANCE
CELEBRATE THE HISTORY & EDUCATE THE PUBLIC, ESPECIALLY CHILDREN

Azure Mountain Friends is a 501 (c) 3 not for profit organization and your donation may be used as a charitable contribution.


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.
