    Did you know that there are a bunch of fire towers in the Pine Barrens that you can visit?

    Some are open to the public and some aren't, but even if you can't climb the fire towers that are scattered throughout New Jersey's famed Pinelands, visiting the structures is a cool way to spend a spring weekend!
