  • It's a beautiful ride to the top of the hill with all the trees. The tower is beautiful itself. Love the history. There are some old buildings on the other side of the parking lot. I did not find out if they were from the days of Washington's troops, but I plan to look into it. It was very nice to take the elevator to the top and look out over the trees and river.
  • The view was breathtaking. Very glad this was recommended to me. The overall scenery was fantastic, maybe a better site in the fall when the leaves start changing, but for a first time there it was fantastic. It was also a positive that there weren’t too many people at the top.
  • It is a great place to go. Haven't been there for a long time. Not crowded during the week. Spectacular views of Bucks Co. Seven bucks
  • Awesome views. I got great pictures. There is even an elevator up in case you are like me and don't do steps. Lol
  • Nice out if the way attraction from revolutionary war. Great view, nice tower and quiet. Plenty of raspberries around too.
