Very cool fire tower, not much to see from inside the cab unfortunately.
Climbed via the Pillsbury Trail from Sled Harbor. An easy hike, even from the lower trailhead. Spectacular views from the lookout tower.
Windy on the tower and cold, nice and calm on the treed in summit though. Great views of wilderness from the tower.
Happy to be first to sign your log. Had a pleasant solo day trip to the top of Pillsbury in the summer of 1977. I recall at that time you could only drive in part of the way on the approach road. There was a barrier, then perhaps a few miles of road walking before the climb began.
