As of 201, the Tower Road can no longer be accessed directly from the paved roads.

Description

The Tower Road is the main arterial on the south side of Galbraith and it's also the quickest way of reaching the summit. On the way to the top, it parallels the Three Pigs (Brick, Stick, and Straw) and intersects with several other trails and roads.

To reach the summit, stay right at both the Blue Rock and Red Rock, and then a left at the Yellow Rock after Unemployment Line (the yellow rock is hard to spot). Finally, take the next left for the final steep climb to the top and prepare for a fun descent.
