Description

This trail starts heading west off the Valley Trail and begins its ascent. The trail climbs moderately to the tower and crosses some rocky areas. The tower is a little shaky, but the views are decent from the top. The trail continues from the tower stairs up to an obscure yellow-blazed path. This yellow-blazed trail is the Tower Cut-Off Trail, which leads down to the lower end of the Panther Trail. Judging from the blazes, the Tower Trail ends at the upper end of the Panther Trail.
