Following the main road east out of Falkreath towards Helgen, the path leading up to the tower is marked by a cairn on the right-hand side of the road. There is a purple and three red mountain flowers and a mora tapinella fungus growing from a large tree stump just outside the entrance.

Peak's Shade Tower[edit]

The tower has long eroded and the only inhabitant now is a spriggan. Inside is overgrown with vegetation, including a purple and three blue mountain flowers and two thistles. It is also a good place to find monarch butterflies and blue butterflies during the day, but only a few torchbugs or luna moths at night. Along the west wall of the tower, hidden by the vegetation filling the tower is an unlocked chest containing random loot.


  • If you have Dawnguard installed the spriggan may be an Earth Mother and you may also encounter some vampires.
