From the intersection of Highway 60 and Highway 723 in Salem, go south on Highway 723 about 1 mile to the intersection with Highway 1433, then go west on Highway 1433 for about 2.5 miles to the intersection with Fire Tower Road on the north side of the road. There was a locked pipe gate on Fire Tower Road very near Highway 1433 and there were postings from a hunting club.

I inquired at a nearby house and a hunting encampment along Highway 1433 about who I could contact about accessing the land. I was told by a guy in the hunting camp that a man from Paducah leased the land and he drove a unusual green jeep. I was unable to make contact with this man and since it was modern gun deer season I did not want to attempt this one. It was about 3/4 of a mile from Highway 1433 on the Fire Tower Road to the Old Lookout Tower on Lockhart Bluff.
