As by Aug 2008, the trail to the base of Tower Falls hasn't reopened yet. But it is possible to get there, either by climbing the barrier onto the trail (some people do, despite the signs) or getting down to the creek and hiking upstream. It requires climbing a few large boulders though. On the trail there are some washouts, but when dry they are passable with some careful maneuvering. Better not to try it when its wet or icy and slippery.

Will Trail To Tower Fall's Base Ever Reopen?
by: World of Waterfalls

It seems like this trail has been closed for at least four years now! I wonder if they're ever going to re-open it, or if they're closing this trail for good due to the degree of erosion along the part of the trail next to Tower Creek.

I guess they're keeping it closed to keep the amount of traffic (and hence the rate of erosion) relatively low compared to if it was open.

Thanks for the post and photo! It looks like not much has changed in the four years since we were last there (except for maybe the trail conditions).
