South Mountain Loop Trail is one of Pawtuckaway's most popular trails. Many people choose to hike as far as the fire tower then retrace their steps. There is actually an entire network of trails at this park, many of which are remote and quite enjoyable even during the height of the summer season. From South Mountain, you'll be rewarded with views from the fire tower of Uncanoonuc Mountains and several surrounding ponds.
