  • From Highway 97 in Goldendale, take the Broadway Street exit (also called Hwy. 142) at the 76 Service Station.
  • Go one block, then turn left at Aimee’s Attic onto Bickleton Road.
  • Follow Bickleton Road east for 10 miles and then turn left onto Old Mountain Road.
  • In approximately 1 mile, the pavement curves to the right and crosses Badger Gulch; follow it across the small bridge to stay on Old Mountain Road.
  • About 3 miles later, the pavement ends. Slow down; keep it under 25 mph.
  • In another mile, turn right on Ekone Road. Slow down again, 10 mph, past the closest neighbors and down the driveway. Follow Ekone Road for almost 1 mile down into a large valley with a pond.
