AMF Board Prepares for Centennial!

The Azure Mountain Friends Board met at Deer Valley Trails on May 11 to review and begins plans for the centennial of the fire tower. Watch for a NEW Summit Guide, a newsletter, and brochure. The actual centennial is July 29, 2018, but the group will launch a year of fund-raising, to insure the future of the tower and the AMF Scholarship Program this summer. If anyone would like to become involved, please contact us.

Located at the western edge of Franklin County, in the town of Waverly, near the hamlet of Santa Clara, the Azure Mountain fire tower has been standing guard over the northern Adirondacks since 1918.


This web site will bring you the history of the mountain and the story of how the Azure Mountain Friends organized in late 2001 and, with the help of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and Americorps, saved the tower from removal. Our thanks to the generous contributions of all those who love the mountain, and all the hours donated by our many volunteers.

Come visit Azure Mountain, climb the tower, and enjoy the wonderful views. Check the Maps page if you need directions.
