Make a right at Niagara Ave. (in front of the Napa Auto Parts store) and follow the road as it curves to the right and becomes Mathews Lane. At the sign for Crawford turn left and then turn right at the first intersection onto Stewart Mesa Rd. Continue straight for 2.3 miles (at the top of the small hill the road name changes to Back River Rd.) and turn right onto Slate Point Rd. Proceed approximately 150 yards ahead and you will see the sign on the left side of the road. Turn left to enter and press the button on the purple post on the left hand side to open the gate.
