“Marvelous hiking trails”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Any visit to Poet's Seat is uplifting. The flora & fauna are wonderful, the trails for walking varied & the view from the summit of Poet's Seat is guaranteed to please. Summer, winter or fall, a great place to visit.

“A beautiful spot that could use some TLC”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This is a lovely viewing area with interesting hiking trails, an historic tower and comfortable benches for sitting. Unfortunately, years of vandalizing have taken their toll on the tower which detracts from the experience. Otherwise it is worth the stop.

“Nice panoramic view from historical tower”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Historic brick tower built in the mid 1800's on a hill overlooking Greenfield and Montague. Free access. About 65 steps (metal stairs) to the top.
Unfortunately to learn about it I had to use Wikipedia... there is little on site to give its history. Lovely seating area over looking the valley.
5 minute drive to Hope & Olive for a great meal.
We started our outing by going to the Peace Pagoda in North Leverett, which is really worth going to visit.

“A view of the town...”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

It's a tower at the top of th mountain that overlooks the town. It's a nice view, and you could do some hiking around the area, but it is what it is. I wouldn't go out of your way for it, but if you're in Greenfield, it's worth a swing by.
