Directions:

Head west on Highway 90, and continue on the 607. Turn left on the 604. After about 1.7 miles, make a right hand turn, more of a Y actually. It is a paved road but has no name. Follow this road for another 0.5 miles until you see a fence to your right. Past the fence, it's about a quarter of a mile walk from the road. Veer left when you get to the cluster of large oak trees.
