Follow the narrow road to the top for a view of Greenfield from the Poet's Seat Tower. This would be a nice spot to catch sunset. The climb to the top of the tower might be a bit tricky for young kids and anyone who has trouble with heights.

This free attraction is located up a rural roadway. One can hike or drive up to the tower. I drove up and hiked a bit once up there.

The expansive scenic views from the parking area and the tower are excellent and worth the detour to come here.

My visit during was October foliage season so the Mother Nature’s colorful display made the visit quite special for me.

I highly recommend stopping here.

I went here around 2 months ago, I found this place in this website and I kept forgetting to write a review, the view from here is very nice, I liked it very much. It seems like a nice place to relax and have a walk. The reason why I don't give it 5 stars is because the tower itself have lots of graffiti that I thought it was very disrespectful to the place but other than that I had a pretty good day. the view is very nice.

Visited in March only to find the lower gate closed. Viewed tower from a distance but did not get to the top. Lots of trash both in the cans and on the grounds. Visit this location in the summer or fall when it appears to be maintained better.

I read about this spot trying to find places to go on a trip out to Western Mass. It's easy enough to find and a beautiful drive up the hill. The twisty road brings you up to a really cool tower. You can climb up the stairs several levels and take in the amazing view!! Definitely worth stopping to check out this spot.

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.

We stayed in Greenfield so we stopped here after we checked out of our hotel. This provided a nice view of the town but definitely nothing to go out of your way for. We stayed at a hotel across town and it almost wasn't worth the 15 minute drive. It had a nice overlook but it was very dirty, covered in graffiti, and had a lot of garbage scattered around the grounds. We would never stop again.

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 trail goes through a wooded area and is very nice for viewing wildflowers in season. The best view is at the end of the trail, near Poet's Seat Tower or just north of the tower where there is a clearing with a half dozen memorial benches, where you can rest and enjoy the view before making your descent back down the trail. During peak fall foliage (usually the middle two weeks of October in Greenfield), the view is really spectacular.
