Lookout towers offer spectacular sweeping views. They can however be rather high and may be a bit challenging if heights aren't your thing. Do you feel comfortable climbing lookout towers?

Uncomfortable is the not word. Scared poopless somewhat begins to describe it.

I hate heights but I was determined to get up there. I held the trailing on both sides of the steps and there was no way I was going to the edge at the top.
oh yes. I look forward to the lovely view awaiting me at the top. Heights don't worry me too much
I would have been before my back injury.
Particularly if it was like your photo Gayle.
It looks safe and not too high.

As long as it looks safe, I would not have a problem with this however probably nowadays would not attempt it as I would suffer later, and am also not fit despite walking on flat surfaces every day for about half an hour, for exercise.

Safer than climbing to top diving board on tower at a diving pool!

Yeah, no probs climbing fire tower, as have done so. Heights don't worry me, as long as there's an 'enclosure', so to speak.

Highest structure I've climbed was Pyramid of the Sun, at Teotihuacan, outside Mexico City.
Going up was fine, but coming down, shall I say 'interesting', as no handrail, & steps were 12" high, & 4" wide.

Came down on my bum, for quite a few of them, I felt safer that way, until my handsome chauffeur climbed steps & held my hand for the last 12 or so steps! Lol!
I remember there was a lookout tower in the primary school that I used to climb up all the time! It was nice t be at the top having my lunch and chatting with friends. The climb up isn't too scary, I think it's coming down that's scary! The tower I climbed didn't have proper stairs, it was just criss crossed bits of logs that led to the top!
As a young teen my mum would take us for drives and we would picnic at the old jimna fire tower, it was 120 feet high, as an extra chalenge we used to climb the outside of the tower instead of using the stairs, now if my kids tried that stunt i would have a heart attack. The arrogance of youth eh
