Best view in the area! Five stars for the view. 3-stars for the relatively poor maintenance of the tower and surrounding area. If you're visiting the area and are looking for something to do besides shopping or drinking, the Tower is a great place to visit. It gives you a taste of the old Bucks County, taking you back to times past. The hike up the hill is a great workout, though you can drive it if you choose. The views change considerably throughout the year from the stark grays of winter, to the greens of spring to the yellows and reds of autumn. Whenever you're in the area, you'll get a different perspective.
Nice scenic view; quick stop. Too bad its not open past 5:00 even in summer. FYI, may be no or limited internet--I couldn't Tweet, Periscope, etc in the area & even lmtd radio signals in area. Did find a picturesque old covered bridge up past Tower off side road & it worth checking out along w/ great scenic riding area.
cool tower with a great view!!
