Mt. Carrigain Fire Tower, located on the edge of the Pemigewasset Wilderness, is a large open platform with railing with some of the best views on the Forest. It is a 5 mile hike up the Signal Ridge Trail to the tower, slightly longer if you approach through the Wilderness Area and up Desolation trail. There is a small dispersed camping area just below the fire tower, requiring leave no trace camping skills.
