Beautiful location. The panoramic view of Bucks County and the river from the tower is great if you go on a clear day.

Bowman's Hill Tower offers a beautiful view of the surrounding country and river! I would definitely recommend going during the fall because the hills are brilliant reds, oranges, and golds, although I'm sure it would be pretty any time of the year.

You can walk to the top of the tower, which you often have to do when the elevator doesn't work. Really nice view from the top. Combine this visit with a trip to Washington Crossing park.

The hill paths are now closed. However, the Tower itself is still a feat to climb and the award is a magnificent 360... More

This is the first time I have been to Bowman Tower. The views from the top are spectacular. Please note that in July of 2013 the elevator was not working. It's a pretty good hike to the top.

Who wouldn't love looking down from this wonderful mountain? Wonder who walked along these woods and walked up that tower....History what a wonderful reason to take a walk.
