Ascent Trip Report

A dirt road walk ... 200 yards RT.

A gated dirt road leaves the north side of Yokum Rock Road .19 miles east of Old Bass River Road, and climbs 100 yards to the fenced-in Fire Tower signed "Dennis Tower", the man-gate was locked ...... the area is surrounded by beautiful oak forest with no views.
On the way out I went to the local Fire Station in Dennis to inquire about staffing of the Tower .... the guy told me that it was staffed on "nice days" but I got the feeling he wasn't sure, today it was overcast with spitting rain.

This is the 4th Tower out of 8 that I have visited on Cape Cod (see my Telegraph Hill TR for more details).
