** NOTE the private road up to the property is a combination of dirt and pavement. It is easily traversable by all vehicles except the last mile. An all wheel drive or 4-wheel drive is preferred for that section, but not necessary. Mini coopers, Prius, and other low to the ground vehicles all have made it. Simply drive slowly and watch for oncoming vehicles as it is single lane in many places.
The property is on Skyview Road above Boulder Creek. There are no street addresses. Once you are on Deer Creek Road we'll have signs posted to guide you the rest of the way.
Here are the written directions including some local commentary:
• From Boulder Creek, head up Bear Creek Road 4.5mi to left on Deer Creek Road
• 2.1 mi to left on Ramble Road (extremely sharp left)
◦ This is about 1/3 mile past the THIRD BRIDGE
◦ Ramble is not signed, but it is a paved left, extremely sharp and steep
• 1.6 mi up Ramble (and I do mean up)
◦ First half is paved; rougher road after the halfway point
◦ You don’t need to go through any closed gates, just stay on the main road
• Left on Skyview, at the top; there’s a sign and the bullet car is un-missable
◦ Don't go up the part with all the red reflectors
◦ Road follows the ridge 0.2 miles
◦ You'll see our sign and arrow directing you to turn right onto the property
◦ Proceed to the check in tent
