The road to connect from Marshall to Mittower, does involve a section of pushing up a steep bank. An alternative from the top of Marshall might be possible. Once you are up at the saddle you can descend Mittower Gulch, or go down Woody mtn road to Bonner. Also the old jeep road from Blue Point comes down to here.

Access Info

Continue past the new trails on the road, after a few switchbacks you will see sort of a trail going up the hill to the next road.
