About the Stone Tower

Set on the highest point in Lynn, Stone Tower is a 48 ft. tall field stone tower on the top of Burrill Hill. This rustic field stone tower commands an impressive view of Lynn's waterfront, Boston and beyond.

Seasoned trail runners raved @ the challenging 15 k course which tours the heights and under-trails in a moderately grueling fashion! You will need to be fit to take on this tour as you run along the fire roads and single path trails. You will be ascending rocky and hilly terrain past reservoirs, rose gardens, and scenic vistas. This 9.3 run is not to be taken lightly!

The 5k is comparatively less difficult but does ascend to Burrill Hill and the Stone Tower in the last mile. It is good hard clean fun!

Walkers can visit the Stone Tower up the main fire road which is roughly a 1.5 mile roundtrip.

Thank you to everyone contributing their time and resources to this effort! Special thanks to Joe Abelon, Bill Mullen, Dave Jefska, & Aaron Toleos.
