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!

Nice hike up a paved road, or you can drive up and there is some parking along the way and at the top. Good views but nothing special

Came upon this unassuming tower and were impressed by its sense of peace and simplicity, very calming and welcoming. One can only imagine poets, both then and now, visiting and gaining inspiration. Enjoyed the easy climb and expansive views of Greenfield.

We walked to Poet's Tower from downtown to take in the views. It's really pretty there and worth a stop. Just make sure not to walk down the road to the left, that was the very long way back into town.
