Comments: Unnamed trail from Tower Road

Very easy trail to follow. Blue ribbons or blue paint on trees up to Tower sign then ribbons change to yellow. Trail was mostly dry gravel, small rocks, and leaves with some easily negotiable patches of mud and occasional running water at lower elevations. Only significant mud was between Tower sign and the canister. No boulders or roots like in the White Mountains of NH. Just a steady uphill climb on a relatively wide trail with a brief reprieve at about 3000’ when the trail “turns” right (East)- not as sharp a turn as the map made it look! Coming into the clearing just above 3600’ the Tower sign is on the right and the yellow ribbons leading to the canister (through the mud) are on the left. Only real views are from South Peak where the remains of the tower are located. Back at the clearing, just keep following the yellow ribbons up and you’ll walk right up to the canister. This was the widest, most well-marked, easy to follow “unmaintained” trail I’ve hiked! Definitely not a bushwhack!
