Beautiful 360 degree view of Fall Creek Falls State Park.

The tower is located in the far northeast corner of Fall Creek Falls state park. The road to get there can be rough especially if it has rained recently but any 2 wheel drive vehicle should be able to make it. When you get to the trailhead it is a small gravel pull off with a gate. From the gate it is a short half mile hike to the tower. At the bottom of the tower is a small sign with the history of the tower. When you get to the top of the tower you will be able to see the entire park including the valley that runs through the park. The tower is a great place to watch sunset from. Around the tower is some good places to sit and have a picnic after the small hike to the top.
