Take the stairs (316 of them) to get the best experience. Not the most impressive structure, but there are nice exhibits at the top and spectacular views in all directions.

We hiked up to this but you can drive. Great views not only from tower but there is also a gazebo w spectacular views and it's like a park setting...we spent about an hour just shooting photos and taking in the scenery.

The road up to the tower was stunning in its fall beauty. Beautiful views all around. Nice little drive up the mountain. Great little side trip.

Paid the $8 for a quick elevator ride up top. Saw the fall leaves and a hawk soaring through the sky! Great views on the 2nd and 3rd floor areas. If you enjoy hiking, take the Peak Trail up to the tower.

Great view from this high point right in the middle of town. A definite sightseeing stop to visit. A little more information here would be helpful but still no complaints.
