Getting up to the tower was even a neat adventure, & then the view from the top was awesome!!! The day we were there it was pretty windy & we enjoyed every moment. When... More

We visit the tower pretty regularly. It overlooks the Greenfield Valley and offers gorgeous views, especially at sunset. We have seen bald eagles fly past us, too. The walk up is a pleasant one with benches for an occasional rest. Popular hiking site.

In about 2 weeks you'll see rolling hills brilliantly colored! For that it is a free vista. Road up is full of potholes so beware. If you hike up there are benches to stop and enjoy the sights. Lovely town below too.

Nice spot and very short walk to the tower. A little hard to find but otherwise worth looking for. Very breathtaking views from the tower and you can climb all the way to the top of it

Despite reading on Trip Advisor that there was a lot of graffiti and garbage, we took a trip to this lovely spot today - and found little graffiti or garbage. The walk up to the tower is an easy one - less than half a mile and gradual incline. There are further trails should you be so inclined - a... More

Poet's Seat Tower is located within Rocky Mountain Park. Many people get to the tower via the roadway off Mountain Rd., but there are a number of hiking trails within the park. I prefer to walk to the tower on the Blue Trail, which begins near Stone Farm Ln. This involves moderate exercise, as the trail is mostly uphill. The... More

We took a hike from my in-laws house and ended up here. What a beautiful view from the tower. Peaceful and serene and a great little hike.

I know there have been complaints of there being trash here, but, when we went, it was, surprisingly, clean. The views we had were fantastic. If you are in the area, this is definitely a little side attraction you shouldnt miss. Particularly with the coming fall-the leaf viewing should be spectacular!
