The best thing about the Ward Hills Fire Tower site is the foundation of the keeper's house. All that's left from the tower is the footings, and the trees have grown in so there isn't even a very good view. But it's fun to imagine who might have lived in this small house and what their lives were like.
With the aid of navigational tools you can make a nice loop with the NCT, 8th St, the tower access road, and a short bushwhack.
