Drive US 221 south from VA 419, and turn onto Tinsley Road (VA 711). Drive 0.2 miles to a T at Poor
Mountain Road. Turn right and go to the end of the pavement at 3.5 miles, at a 4-way intersection. Turn
left, ascend the ridge, pass many towers, and reach the only left turn, at a gated dirt road, at 5.3 miles.
Hike up this road to the tower, with high ground reached by a short bushwhack to the right before the
tower. I did not visit the tiny area to the southwest.
