The time required is approx. 1.5 hours.

On the Dubeň Hill (613 m above sea level), there is an impressive observation tower above the city of Žilina. The lookout tower is imposing with its height of 27.4 meters and 10 floors. It offers splendid views of the surrounding area and, in particular, the city of Žilina, whose towers will be provide to you as a pocket of handkerchief. There are also masts for television and mobile networks in the vicinity of the tower.

It is freely accessible all year round and it is possible to get there by hiking trails from Zástranie, Zádubnie or Budatín.

The shortest access here is from the Žilina - Zádubnie district. Approx 100m down the hill (in the direction towards the city) from the bus stop Prípojná, on the left side there is a panel road, at the end of which is a water reservoir for the city district. You will walk along the panel road and at the end turn right to to meadow and walk up the hill along the green hiking trail for about 15 minutes. At the end of the meadow you enter the forest and continue to the right along the green or (more beautiful) red hiking trail. The entire route is approximately 1.4 kilometers long and it takes around 30-40 minutes.

The second, slightly more demanding route, is from the district of Žilina - Budatín. Red marked trail leads mostly across the forest and has a length of about 2 km.

„Myslím, že popis cesty zo zastávky MHD Prípojná je presný a nemali sme žiaden problém cestu nájsť. Dokonca už na zastávke je značka so šípkou, že sa treba vrátiť dolu po ceste a odbočiť na panelovú cestu. Na začiatku bolo síce trochu strmšie stúpanie ale trasu zvládli bez problémov aj rodičia - dôchodcovia. Samotná vyhliadková veža je riadne vysoká a výhľady z nej sú ozaj impozatné. Prikladám aj foto z cesty a rozhľadne. Vracali sme sa po červenej do Budatína ale táto trasa bola dlhšia a strmšia, jednochšie je vrátiť sa po zelenej do späť do Zádubnia.“

„Súhlasím s niektorými z Vás, áno bludili sme, chvíľami sme to už chceli vzdať ale nakoniec všetko dobre dopadlo, vďaka miestnym obyvateľom, ktorí ochotne poradili a spoločnou cestou na vežu nám odprezentovali názvy okolia z výhľadov, týmto im srdečne ďakujem, jednoducho skvelý deň :) “

„Ono je to tak, keď väčšina ľudí je natoľko pohodlná že bez auta už ani nevie prejsť z kuchyne do obývačky.“ Ja som sa tam dostal v pohode a je tam veľmi pekne. Poznám mnoho výhliadkových veží a ďalších pekných miest ktoré nie sú dostupné autom. Nikto nenúti ľudí chodiť do prírody, a nech tam radšej ani takí ľudia nechodia keď nevedia pochopiť že do prírody nevedie diaľnica D1, D2, D3, D4, rýchlostné cesty R1, R2, R3, R4, R5, R6, R7, R8 a cesty druhej a tretej triedy. ,,Mohli radšej tú vyhliadkovú vežu postaviť na TESCO parkovisku", veď načo v peknej nedostupnej prírode kde sa predsa nedá zaparkovať autom, no to už je len úroveň. Podľa niektorých ľudí by tú vežu mali zapáliť, veď načo stojí tam kde nie je rovno prístup autom na parkovisko a od tial päť krokov do veže disponujúcej výťahom, áno výťahom veď ktorý pako by predsa chodil po schodoch.“
