  • You can see this as you come up I-8 going southbound. Take the next exit and you’ll pass some interesting vehicles along your way back to the tower. It’s only a mile or so back. From the tower and par...  more »

  • You NEVER see stores like this anymore. There is like 5 floors once you get up, the view is AMAZING. There is a telescope which cost 25¢ to see through and your can see the wind turbines, which are pretty far away, really chose up, and if that isn't enough, there is some stairs that lead a bit more up giving you an even better view. Now to the store part, it's AWESOME. Again, you don't see stores like this anymore. It's full of fun and cool little knick-knacks. It's just an awesome place with some of the best views. Definitely worth coming to while on a road trip or something like that.
  • For as long as I can remember, driving from the east, towards San Diego, I have wanted to stop here. I finally did it. It was the high point of a drive that I already love. The people who own it are very nice. Turns out it's not just the tower that is worth stopping to experience. The rock carvings are very cool. I found myself thinking that I could live there, happily. I plan to stop by from now on, sorry I waited so many years.
  • Huge animals carved in granite boulders. So awesome, crawling in around them. Love all the dogs. And the people are pretty great too. Really spectacular view from top of the tower. Love this place! Highly recommend!
  • This is a really interesting place. It's $6 to go up the tower and there's an eclectic gift shop and range of items to look at as you climb up the stairs. You can have a nice view of the surrounding area. The real gem is the boulder park next to it though. It was a blast climbing in and around and under the rocks and a man had carved rock animals and figures that are fun to check out as you explore.
  • Strange old place with great views and quirky "museum" and gift shop. (Lots of nature books.) The carved boulders are fanciful and fun. Short hikes and rock climbing. Loved it. Good place for a picnic.
