Wonderful views on a clear day. The metal stairs are safe for smaller kids too. There are some rubbish around, but not too much. It’s free to visit.

This is an excellent day trip for locals. The hike is moderate, the views are beautiful. This is a good trip year round. Bring a lunch and eat at the top.

The view from the top in October is unbelievable! A very nice walking trail will keep you busy and pack a lunch to enjoy the park benches.

Great views. Several Nice hikes up to the tower. Park at the bottom and hike up to the tower. Great place to see the town of greenfield and the beautiful hills surrounding it.

Nice walk up the road from “mountain road” parking. Little over 1/2 mile to tower, small grade up. Walk on Blue trail beyond the tower for a mile, really nice.

Nice tower with great views but see it soon as it needs many repairs. It is a short walk no real exertion. But, It is WELL worth the walk. DO IT NOW BEFORE THEY EITHER CLOSE IT OR JUST TEAR IT DOWN.

Seriously. Stay away. Nothing to see here. Go somewhere else. Too many people like to ruin things with garbage and graffiti.
