About Egypt Rock:

This tower is located deep in the guts of the monument. Hike down the monument canyon trail (like you heading to clue-less tower. After about 45 minutes of hiking, look straight south and you'll see the tower. This is easily identified with a chimney system arching up and right up the middle of the formation. This isn't near the coke ovens. Nor is it in the canyon behind the coke ovens. It sits all by itself with another smaller spire behind it and the rimrock. Hike crosscountry from the trail straight south to the base.
