These towers are actually next to the rim just east of Tusher Canyon. This page, or the State Highway 313 page (that one would not allow it), seemed like the best location for the descriptions
To reach them drive north on 191 from the 313 turnoff for about a mile. Turn onto a dirt road (Cotter Mine Road) that usually has lots of ATV trailers parked at its start. Follow this road for about 3/4 of a mile, passing over the tracks on the way. Turn leftat the 3/4 mile mark towards the rim. This road goes straight at the rim and then contours up the hillside. As you drive up it you will be looking at the north side of the tower. The road deteriorates after a large flat area that used to be the surface staging spot for some uranium mines (the Cotter Mine).

It has great rock, unique feature...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
