In 2005 the Forest District Łopuchówko built a fire fighters’ observation tower, today known simply as the observation tower, at the highest point of the mountain. The tower is an attraction for tourists who, after climbing 172 steps can marvel at the view of Czerwonak Commune and the nearby Poznań, as well as the forest and hills of Zielonka forest. The tower has a height of 40 metres. The observation platform available to visitors is located at 30 metres, above it, there is a very well equipped foresters’ observation station.
Because the opening hours depend on the season and weather, it is worth checking whether the tower is available before embarking on the trail.
