Beautiful stone tower sitting atop @500 foot hill giving clear views of Franklin County (Greenfield Area). Visiting the tower is free as is the surrounding hiking/walking paths.

It's a tower at the top of th mountain that overlooks the town. It's a nice view, and you could do some hiking around the area, but it is what it is. I wouldn't go out of your way for it, but if you're in Greenfield, it's worth a swing by.

For all the hype I was expecting something truly great. Instead it was just ok. If you like to hike maybe you could wander around the forest for awhile. Nothing special.

My childhood buddy and I used to scale the steps of this old tower and repeated the process again some 60 years later. brought back a lot of memories. PS, great photo op.

If your walk needs a destination this is as good as any, or if the gate is open you can drive right up to the tower, just overlook the graffiti, the scattered trash and the used condoms. Nice panoramic view of Greenfield and the surrounding area. You can almost look straight down from here onto the roofs and fields below... More

Poet's Seat is a nice place to visit to look out over the town of Greenfield. There are steps to get to the fiirst levels of the tower and a metal spiral staircase to get to the top of the tower.There are also some nice hiking trails that go out from the tower area.

Named after a local poet of years gone by, this is a lovely spot to stop in the area. You can drive the short roadway up to the summit, or park your car at the bottom, or even not far away in town, and hike up. The vista from the top is delightful! And, for longer distance hikers, there are... More

You can get a great view of the Greenfield area, Mohawk Trail and a good deal of Franklin County. Very pretty, especially in fall season!!
