“Short climb, long views”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

From this stone tower you can see forever, or at least you can see Cape Cod Bay. It's a short hike, at least compared to the tower in Provincetown, and fun for children, who won't get tired.

“gave this an 'average' cause there's no 'good'”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

This was an ok place to stop and check out if you happen to be passing through Dennis. It's not worth a drive to JUST to this though because you can only kill 10-20 minutes here. The observation tower isnt much of a climb...so even if you're afraid of heights, this one shouldnt scare ya. Once you get to the top, you do have great views....but like i said, this is something you 'pop in' and do along your journey...not dedicate a day to.

“Great Views”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

The views are amazing from the top of the tower. Very nice to go with friends of any age. There is a spiral staircase to the top about 30 feet. Not a far drive if you like photo's this is the place to take some. Loved it.

“Gorgeous”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

A scary trip up a circular staircase gets you to a view of the Cape that can't be found anywhere else. Peaceful and beautiful. A hidden treasure.

“A must go with the kids”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We have climbed the tower since we were kids...then with kids....and now waiting to do it with grandkids? It's a fun time and kids just love towers.
