“Worth the extra steps to enjoy sweeping views of the nature preserve and surrounding areas from the Observation Tower.”— John Shuttlesworth
Dogs must be on leashes no longer than 6 feet.
Skateboards, long boards and all motorized vehicles (including hover boards) are prohibited at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.
This tower is very well built and a great spot to enjoy a quick or long break. The trail continues winding through the forest providing access to many of the unpaved trails and connectors and concludes back on the Arbor Hills Loop.
