This is a drive-up.

Adam Helman and myself drove from Morrow CoHP via FS 53 to the junction with US-395. We continued heading west on OR-244 through Ukiah. You will proceed east for many miles towards Lehman Springs, take a right and head south on FS 5226. This route is about 12 miles from the highway. We found this road signed very well all the way to the lookout on Tower Mountain. The road is rather rough, but passable by car. BM is built into the tower base, we tramped to the top and then proceeded back to US-395.
