Szarvaskő is located on the western rim of Bükk in a majestic valley. The landscape is made up by the valley of Eger Creek, steep volcanic cliffs and the winding railway, which is most enjoyable from the lookout tower on Major-tető.
In 2004 a mobile service provider chose Major-tető (360 m) to build a cell tower on and agreed with the local government to integrate it into a lookout tower. As a result of this win-win agreement the cell tower is partly covered by a wooden structure, which offers a great panoramic view over the area at a height of 30 meters. Besides the immediate surroundings you can enjoy the view over the Bükk Plateau and Eger, too.
The Blue \ (K\) nature trail of 11 stations guides you from the village center to Várhegy via Akasztó-hegy and Major-tető (nearly 10 km).
