Built in 1932 the historic Fifield Fire Tower stands in tribute to the lookouts that spent long days in the small cabin atop the tower watching for wisps of smoke that might indicate a fire. Interpretive signs provide visitors with the history of the tower and region. 

The tower is just a short (uphill) hike from the Wintergreen Trailhead parking area. A National Forest parking pass is required. The fee for a day pass can be paid at the parking area. An annual sticker can be purchased at the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest office at 1170 S. 4th Avenue / Highway 13 in Park Falls, over the phone at 715-762-2461, or at several local businesses.
