“Nice view”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Poet's Seat is a nice place to visit to look out over the town of Greenfield. There are steps to get to the fiirst levels of the tower and a metal spiral staircase to get to the top of the tower.There are also some nice hiking trails that go out from the tower area.

“Sweet place.”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Named after a local poet of years gone by, this is a lovely spot to stop in the area. You can drive the short roadway up to the summit, or park your car at the bottom, or even not far away in town, and hike up. The vista from the top is delightful! And, for longer distance hikers, there are hiking paths that go in a few directions (check out parking nearby in Highland Pond area to hike to and from with the Tower as your destination).

It's great for couples, families and friends!

You can get a great view of the Greenfield area, Mohawk Trail and a good deal of Franklin County. Very pretty, especially in fall season!!

“Meh.”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

A very romantic name for a rather uninspiring tower with a not-so-fascinating history. View was pretty though.
