The correct pronunciation of the tower is debated. The Heublein family came from Germany, where they pronounced it HOY-bline, but after immigrating to the United States, over the years it was pronounced HIGH-bline. After Heublein Inc. was bought by the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company in 1982, advertising was run on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, who pronounced it HUGH-bline.
Heublein Tower reviews
Been hiking to the Tower for many many (40) years. The ridge trail is shorter and a little more challenging. Hiked to the tower when it was closed (before State restoration). During the 1970's... more »
The tower was closed due to COVID but it’s still a great spot to visit regardless. The hike up is nice and the views at the top are great. Lots of room and area to explore and picnic areas outside. more »
Very nice place to see for sure. It was a good place to take a hike and well worth it for sure when you get to see the tower/home at the top. Had a great afternoon here.
When the tower is open the views are breath taking. Great hike for all ages. Our 2.5 year old hiked 90% of the way there and back and slept so well that night!
