The Bald Mountain (Rondaxe) fire lookout tower was originally constructed in 1917. It was restored from 2001-2004 by Friends of Bald Mountain volunteers with DEC Region 6 staff.

It is an aermotor ls7 tower. It is 35ft. to the floor of the cab. The cab is 7ft x 7ft. It originally contained an Osbourne fire finder that was used in conjunction with a panoramic photo of the surrounding forest to accurately pinpoint the location of any fires.
