At the top of East Peak is a tower that looks like a castle, called Castle Craig. Castle Craig Tower stands 32 feet (9.8 m) high on 976-foot (297 m) East Peak in Meriden's Olmsted designed Hubbard Park. A plaque at the site claims that Castle Craig is the highest point within 25 miles (40 km) of the coast from Maine to Florida, but in fact, nearby West Peak at 1,024 feet (312 m), is higher than both East Peak and the tower.
