Fall foliage & fire tower hike

Balsam Lake Mountain at 3723 feet stands taller than anything as far as the eye can see. The fragrance of balsam fir trees on this summit only serve to add to this high mountain experience. The brilliant autumn colors make for incredible photos from the fire tower on the summit. Bring along a small pack with lunch, snacks, and plenty of water for the day. Sturdy hiking boots are highly recommended. Essential clothing for the weather is a must (rain wear and synthetic jacket). Meet the BOP van in front of the East Gym at 7:50 a.m.
