Caribou Mountain Fire Tower

Northern Ontario

Follow the road 2km from town, then climb a short path through the trees of White Bear Forest and, finally, a vertigo-inducing spiral staircase to enjoy this tower's sweeping views. It was built in the late '50s and (don't worry) restored in 1998. If you don't fancy that staircase, there is a lookout at the base of the tower.
