Please list Wakely Mtn. tower as restored. NYSDEC replaced the wooden steps and it is now in great shape! Thanks.

Did they fix the guy wires on the structure as well? Was it painted? Was there safety fencing installed? Thanks for the update.

I wouldn't say it's "like new". Don't recall there is safety fencing nor new guy wires nor painting. But definitely safe and stable in my book. It was a joy to see the new wooden treads on the steps. The old ones were definitely getting punky.
