This tower is in incredibly good shape, including the Cupola.  It is also one of the last Fire Lookout Towers to be constructed in the Algoma District.  There is a 1 km trail heading west from Saunders Lake to the tower.  There is also a Geodetic on the hill, however, we were not able to locate it, due to many leaves and brush on the ground.  The former towerman cabin is on the North-West shore of the lake, on a point.  The hike to the tower from the main road is considered 'easy' with only a gradual grade heading upward.
