Nothing that grand. Just a little look out point. There wasn't alot of people around and its a dark trail so it gave me kind of a sketchy vibe. You can drive up to it and park right outside of it if u want or walk the .4 mile up.

Wish we parked at the beginning of the drive to the Poets Seat, at least we would have gotten some excercise. Though I usually like this type of attraction (old school), the fact that is the number 1 rated thing to do says something about Greenfield, Mass. A nice tower, nice view of Greenfield but disgusting. Garbage, cigarette butts are... More

From the Poet's Seat tower you have a nice view of Greenfield, and the surrounding area. When we were there, there was a fair amount of graffiti--some of it interesting. Looks like it might be somewhere local teens come to smoke and mock their elders on a warm summer evening.

This is a hidden treasure right in Greenfield. Good hiking trails on both sides of the road and wonderful views.

On a nice day, park at the turn-off and walk the road to the tower, about 1/2 mile. You can climb the stairs of the tower for a beautiful 360 degree view of the Pioneer valley. Lovely in the fall but beautiful any time of year. Fireworks are shot from this location on July 4th-Quite a show! The is a... More

Poet's Seat Tower is a "Don't Miss" if you have a camera and want to see a beautiful, day or night, of the Vermont/New Hampshire border. A story of Poet's Seat sits at the bottom of the tower and once you go up the spiral staircase you'll see why this tower is in existence. A nice stop on your ride!... More

Excellent place to walk the dog, or hike up with a friend - can walk or drive in season - you can hike the trail or road. Outstanding view of Greenfield, perfect sunset place! Bring a lunch, benches and tower to walk up! Not hard, easy for all.
