From Nevada City: Take Highway 49 north out of Nevada City to Newtown Road. Turn left on Newtown (at the Willo), go several miles to Empress Road, turn right, and turn right again on Bitney Springs Road. Go about 3 miles and turn right on Barr Ranch Road – you will see the tall wooden sign that says “Linden Lea” at the entrance. 

From Grass Valley: Take Main Street (which becomes Rough & Ready Highway) west for several miles to a stop sign, turn right on Bitney Springs Road. Follow Bitney Springs for 5 miles and turn right on Barr Ranch Road – you will see the tall wooden sign that says “Linden Lea” at the entrance. 

The road before Barr Ranch is North Ponderosa; you will see a sign for "North Ponderosa Ranch" as a heads-up that Barr Ranch is coming up in about 1/2 mile. If you get to Pleasant Valley Road, you missed Barr Ranch 2.2 miles back up hill. The road after Barr Ranch is Starduster. 

Our house is 8/10 of a mile on Barr Ranch. Stay straight, no turns. Follow the 1/8th notes. There will be a vineyard on your left. Passed a corral, at ca. 6/10 mile, the road to our house turns to gravel. (Paved road bears right downhill at that point; DO NOT take the paved road.) 

Gates will be open for the event. There's one at about 2/10 mile, one at 6/10, and one at 7/10. The one at 7/10 is silver and has a yellow diamond Peruvian Horse sign. Proceed toward the large yellow building with white columns. 

Caution! Do not use Google Maps or Mapquest, they may lead you seriously astray.
