path and fenceFrom San Francisco: take Highway 101 North across the Golden Gate Bridge and continue north towards Santa Rosa [see below for further directions].

From Oakland and the East Bay: take Interstate 80/580 towards Berkeley. Just north of Berkeley, take the 580 as it exits Interstate 80 and goes toward the Richmond Bridge and San Rafael. After crossing the bridge, 580 continues to and merges into Highway 101 North.

Continue on Highway 101 North past San Rafael, Novato, Petaluma, and Santa Rosa. Just north of Santa Rosa, take the River Road exit. [Do not take the Guerneville Road exit in Santa Rosa.] Turn left [west] on River Road and proceed 14 miles to the town of Guerneville.

Once in Guerneville, go through town and continue 1/2 mile past the Safeway store and turn right on Old Cazadero Road. Look at your odometer at this point, for you will be going 5.5 miles on Old Cazadero Road to our gate.

After the first mile or so, you will cross a bridge and come to a stop sign, where you will see a house directly in front of you. Turn right, and immediately take the left fork to stay on "Old Caz." Ignore right hand turns for Fern Way and Arroyo. After another 1/2 mile the road makes a sharp turn to the right, crosses a bridge, and begins to climb. Be careful not to continue straight at this point, or you will end up in a private driveway.
