We have used the Tower parking lot as a meeting place for visitor's coming from "North of the Tower," if we needed a car to follow another somewhere in So. County. Otherwise, it's not really worth a stop just for the tower. In fact, I...More

Located at the intersection of Rt 1 & Rt 138 with lots of parking makes this an easy attraction to get to, which is good, since there are several levels of stairs to get to the top. This is an old fire tower, so it...More

You only see trees that are larger than the tower. You can see some parts of the highway that is next to the tower, but that is not very special. Broken bottles and cans everywhere.

We climber the tower many times years ago when the surrounding trees were much smaller. This time when we drove by the tall trees looked like they really blocked the view. Too bad because the view was great.

If the traffic is backed up (which it usually is!), this is a great FREE place to stop and check out the views. Kids love it here, and if the weather cooperates the views stretch all the way to Block Island.

I've been climbing the tower since I was a little kid. The trees surrounding the tower have grown and there views aren't quite as good as they used to be. It's still fun to climb to the top to see what you can see.
