In the vicinity of the observation tower, there is a signboard indicating that unauthorized entry is prohibited. Anyway, it is easy to climb the lookout tower. Looking from the top in the northern direction, it is possible to see the highest peaks of the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy, hills like Kněhyně, Smrk, Lysá hora, Travný, but also the boundary Beskydy ridge with Veľký Polom Hill.
