Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Dorset
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Great view of the colours during this time of year. Worth the drive up from the city.

Note: There is a parking fee for this adventure if you park at the base of the tower.

The view from the tower hill is spectacular, especially this time of year with the Fall colours out. The fire tower is inviting, but scary for me as I don't care for heights. The tower climb is perfectly safe. I stayed on the first level and held my wife's cane for her as she scampered up two more levels. The views are awesome and I would definitely recommend visiting this beautiful site.

For the small entrance fee it was worth the climb. Definately higher than it looks & the views are lovely.

Though it was kind of cool to climb up the tower and go to the lookout, I would highly reccommend NOT going on the hike! The first half is deemed 'moderate' difficulty and the last half (all uphill, all steep, all nightmare) is deemed 'difficult'. It's like a trap!

Bring LOTS of big spray!
