Federal Hill is a small hill bearing one of NH’s sixteen active fire towers. The summit is reached by a very short hiking trail. From the tower, there are limited views of the Wapack Range and the surrounding area. From the parking area, walk down the access road for 0.1 miles and take a left onto the unnamed trail, which leads to the summit in about 0.2 miles. You can return on the access road if you want to make a loop.

**Use caution if you climb the tower.
