Directions to Tower Rock

USFS
This wall is in property owned by USFS. Be respectful.
From the parking lot of the Junior Williamson Rest Area in Slade, turn left (north) on KY 11, drive 0.1 miles under the Mountain Parkway overpass to a "T" intersection with KY 15. Turn left (east) and continue for 1.5 miles, then turn right (north) on KY 77. This highway is also known as "Nada Tunnel Road", and you may see a street sign so designated at this intersection. Drive 4.4 miles through the tiny town of Nada, through the tunnel, and over the steel bridge (stay right after you cross the steel bridge) to the intersection with KY 715. KY 77 curves left near an old barn while KY 715 continues straight. Stay on KY 715 (don't take the curve to the left) for about 4.4 miles (1.2 miles past the bridge over Gladie Creek) to a pulloff on the right. Park in the pulloff and walk back down the road for about 150 feet to the trailhead for Tower Rock. You may see a sign indicating this. Walk across the road and take the winding trail uphill to a sharp bend near a large boulder. Just past the boulder, to the left, is a faint trail which will take you to Crankenstein, Courtesy Cringe and The Cutting Board. To get to the other routes and to the main part of Tower, stay on the trail. When the trail forks, take the right fork through a hallway of sorts to the nearest end of the rock (north facing).
