The Scenic View at Tower Road
Early this week I decided to take a detour at the top of the mountain and see the fall colors from the look-out on Tower road. I wasn’t disappointed. To get there, turn off route 30 at the Mountain House and head north on Augwick road toward Cowens Gap Start Park. About a mile back you’ll see a dirt road bear off to the right, which is Tower Rd. Take that road and travel about a mile and half to reach the lookout. Just before you arrive, you’ll come to a fork in the road – you can go either way because it is just a loop at the end. About halfway around the circle, park on the side of the road and walk to the edge of the cliff to catch a nice view.
