Nice little interlude on your way somewhere else--good if you have kids who like to climb, etc. The view can be pretty charming.

We were glad we made the stop here. The views were great. Interesting that this was the highest land point in Cape Cod. Would have loved to stay and watch the sunset (or rise). Would also be a nice stop once the trees start changing colors.

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.

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.
