Cook Forest Fire Tower

The 87.5-foot fire tower built in 1929 gave firefighters a 15-20 mile view of the Clarion River Valley and area. The tower retired from service in 1966. Periodically, the box on the top of the tower is open during interpretive programs. Visitors can park their cars and walk a short distance to Seneca Point Overlook and the fire tower for a magnificent view of the Clarion River valley from an elevation of 1600 feet. American Indians used the sandstone of the Seneca Point Overlook area to grind seeds and grains. Look for unnatural indentations in the stone used for these "Indian mills."
