It is a very nice driv to get here, so that's a plus. There are nice views from the top of the tower. You can walk some good hills but bring ur hiking boots it gets pretty steep. The tour igood I would recommend it.

Even though the Washington Crossing PA visitor center encouraged us to go here, we were greatly disappointed. The "hill" is very well shrouded now with trees, the elevator in the tower doesn't work but the property still charges you $6 a person to walk up...More

Great views of the Delaware River and surrounding landscapes especially during Fall foliage. Easy to access and an elevator to the top.

My trip to Bowman's Hill Tower was breathtaking...and not just because of the staircase to get to the top! This attraction is definitely worth a stop if you are in the area. From the main road, I followed a narrow, steep road to the top...More

Went in early November on crystal clear day. The elevator was broken but didn't mind climbing the stairs. The last 25 steps were challenging and if you are claustrophobic it could be difficult. If the elevator was working, you'd still have to climb these last...More

When we went the elevator was out of order, so we walked all the stairs up. If you have a hard time climbing stairs, you might not be able to do it. If the elevator works, then once you get off there are about 23...More

Be sure to add this gem to your day. It is a little out of the way but worth it. The view from the top of the tower is awsome. Be sure to visit during fall colors.

yes, but the view is great. But check hours and days of operation especially now that summer is over.
