Chapter 47 - Hightower Brook

Now that I've established the extent of the Collier Hills, I can locate Hightower Brook.

the village of Nacine, on the Hightower Brook (The Lord of Castle Black, Chapter 37)

Lord Drien was known to have favored extravagant plans of all sorts, and was better than usual in carrying them out. In this case, his idea was for a series of towers, anchored in [Nacine] to serve as a center of communication between the coast to the south, the Shallow Sea to the east, the Adrilankha River to the west, and Dzur Mountain to the north ... The Vallista, however, had barely begun their work when Dzur Mountain, some seventy or eighty miles north, had unexpectedly erupted, either because of the arcane activities of the Enchantress or in spite of them. The eruption had resulted in a remarkable flow of lava, which, in turn, resulted in the [Hightower Brook] becoming blocked to such an extent that it was no longer suitable for navigation (The Lord of Castle Black, Chapter 37)

The source of the Hightower Brook is almost certainly the Collier Hills, but there's no way to say for sure which particular hill/peak. I picked a spot right in the middle (which happened to be Dzur Mountain) and drew it flowing from there to Nacine, and then south to the coast.
