    The tower is in Mohican State Park. I've read that since 2005 the tower is open to go up and in, but the top was closed and locked that day. We made it to the top and stayed on the stairs for the view. Here is some information

    The last url has a photo of the structure. The link at the top right where it lists all towers in Ohio is broke hopefully they will fix that.

    I've climbed up quite a few towers and only been in one in my life... pretty sparce up there. Usually a chair, a compas kind of dial range finder thing and a radio or twisted pair dedicated phone hand set. Oh yea did I mention a huge hole in the floor you do not want to forget about, the one you climbed up in.

    Remember the ranger on the Red Green show? That is what happens to people who stay up there too long.

    I thought there was a tower in Cuyahoga National Park. But I do not know if you can get on the steps due to a fense. I thought Dorothy shot an IR picture of it one trip.

    Is anyone intrested in getting together for lunch in Peninsula the first week of Jan 2010 (next week).

    A few winters ago John and I got together to for lunch in the middle of winter and I'd like to do it again and invite anyone else in the area to come along.

    If you don't mind a wiggly (and occasionally loud) 11 month old, I can maybe do a day trip.
