A beautiful view of Cape Cod awaits you when you climb the tower. The hike up the spiral staircase is not too taxing. On clear days you can see the Provincetown Monument. Scargo lake below has several tales of how it came to be. The story my father told us when we were young was that a local Indian Sachem... More

Quite unexpected. A Beautiful tower with an awesome view. You can actually climb the spiral stairs to the top. For the most awesome view. The stairs are just like ones in a light house.

Great spot to watch the bird migration, not to mention foliage. Bring your binoculars for some spectacular views.

You can easily see from the power plant at the mouth of the canal all the way to P-Town. I couldn't see Boston unfortunately. Only like 36 steps up to top. I've been down the Cape visiting for years and never knew about this place. Bring a lunch.
