Comments: On our continuing quest to stand on every site where a fire tower stands, once stood or was proposed brought us to Dix Peak in Dixville, NH. #63 of the 92 towers for us. We figured we would hike to the top of Table Rock, then take the Cohos Trail over to Dix Peak. Some people take the access road to Dix Peak, but we wanted to see Table Rock again too, so we decided to hike to Dix Peak. We wouldn't be doing that again any time soon. The views from Table Rock were outstanding. The hike over to Dix Peak was wet, muddy and not that much fun. We got some nice views from the top of the Balsams Wilderness Ski Area. We downloaded a GPS track, but realized too late that the track was from before the Turbines were installed, so when the trail ran out, we bushwhacked. Those turbines are HUGE!!!!
