New resting benches on the recently created path up to the Pequot Lakes fire tower off County Road 11 were recently installed.

Levi Palmer of Pequot Lakes Boy Scout Troop 102 chose to head up making the new, easier path as his Eagle Scout project.

Helping him with the benches were Sean Ryan and DNR Forestry technician Ron Hamilton, along with retired DNR worker Keith Simar.

Currently the gate to the fire tower is locked until a bee's nest on the third landing can be removed. Several boys were recently stung.

Help keep the tower area open by reporting any vandalism. The new benches were tipped over later that day. It takes several people to place them back up.
