Nice walk up the road from “mountain road” parking. Little over 1/2 mile to tower, small grade up. Walk on Blue trail beyond the tower for a mile, really nice.

Nice tower with great views but see it soon as it needs many repairs. It is a short walk no real exertion. But, It is WELL worth the walk. DO IT NOW BEFORE THEY EITHER CLOSE IT OR JUST TEAR IT DOWN.

Seriously. Stay away. Nothing to see here. Go somewhere else. Too many people like to ruin things with garbage and graffiti.

My 84 year old father grew up playing around this tower when he spent summers with my great grandparents in Greenfield. He and his brother used to climb the mountain to get to the tower. He took us there when we were kids so it...More

We did not know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised by the view when we reached the top. The Fall Foilage was just beginning to turn and we saw some red colored leaves in several trees. The view is across the city, so maple...More

We stayed in Greenfield so we stopped here after we checked out of our hotel. This provided a nice view of the town but definitely nothing to go out of your way for. We stayed at a hotel across town and it almost wasn't worth...More

Worth a ride, as the view is great. Not open all year. Excellent place to walk, ride your bike, or hike. Is very safe.

Wanted to visit the tower on a Friday evening before dinner. Arrived at the gated entrance off Mountain Rd. to find it closed and the parking lot full. The satellite view showed cars around the Tower and some side streets either side of a sports...More

Great place to walk or drive up to the tower and take in the views. Climbing to the top is easy but can be scary with small children. Nice area to spread out eat a picnic or even read a book

It's amazing here at sunset, or in the winter, or on a grey day to watch the clouds. Sunny days and autumn color are great too!
