Description

This is an old tower that is built like a castle from the beginning on of the century. You can climb all the way to the top of the tower, which offers killer views of Puget Sound. There are two rooms inside, and they have interpretive information on the tower. There is also a gift shop and an ice cream shop at the parking lot.

Short Walk: Use the Mt. Constitution Trail to access. The tower is maybe 40 yards from the parking lot.

Family Friendly: Kids will love exploring this wonderful tower.

About 60 stairs up the tower. Great view on a sunny day.
