The way up the mountain is extremely slow and winding. the scenery is beautiful in late October through mid November. We went the first weekend in November and the colors are amazing. The tower has two elevators with a glass side so you can watch the world as you rise. It makes you a little nervous, in my opinion. When you get to the top, it is a very safe outlook with high wire railings to prevent a gust of wind from blowing you away. I feel like they should add a photo opp area/scene or something for the $7 to go up. It is beautiful but once you see it, you are done and back down you go.
