The Fisher Towers are reached by a short (2.2 mile), somewhat bumpy vehicle track that climbs quite steeply near the end, and leads to the BLM trailhead and a 5 site tent campground (fees $15 per night in 2013). The track is signed from the highway. Free, primitive camping is available about 15 miles away at the south end of Castle Valley.
Fisher Towers Trail
The trail also climbs for most of the way, not too steeply, but gaining another 600 feet during its 2.2 mile length, mostly following upwardly sloping benches at the base of the towers. It starts, however, with a short descent, into a drainage that is dry most of the year, but green bushes along the edges hint of seasonal springs upstream. The path leads up the far side and around two more drainages, at one point running beneath two shapely hoodoos, each topped by a balanced rock, then turns a corner and moves along the base of a vertical wall - above rises one of the larger pinnacles, named Cottontail Tower. The route continues round the head of a fourth drainage, where it is aided by a short ladder up one side of a little slot canyon; next is a fifth ravine, after which the path continues south, along the top of a narrow ridge to an overlook at the far end, high above Onion Creek
. This is a deep, branched wash that may be accessed (from below) by a rough vehicle track. The fifth drainage runs beneath a narrow fin that terminates in the highest part of the towers, a stout spire named the Titan
. Although the path ends at the ridge, walking further east is easy for a little way, around the edge of the next ridge (to the far side of the Titan), but a deeper, wider canyon just beyond makes further travel rather more difficult.
