From Interstate 5, take exit #14, Hwy 66. Drive east 1 mile, turn left on Dead Indian Memorial Road and continue 6.6 miles. Turn left on Shale City Road, a paved Bureau of Land Management road, just after a large powerline crosses Dead Indian Memorial Road. Shale City Rd is a loop … take this end, marked by: “Grizzly Peak Trail,” a sign for our Farm Store, and nine mailboxes. Follow Shale City Road (you are now on public forest land) 3.2 miles. You will cross two cattle guards and a well-graveled road on your left with a “Grizzly Peak Trailhead” sign. Continue on Shale City Rd 50 yards further, and turn right at our driveway, which has a sign. Follow it 3/4 mile to the Farm. Watch for the “Family Forest” and “Watershed Friendly Steward” signs at our entry gate. If the electric gate is closed, the keypad will have instructions for opening.
