Turn south off from US Hwy 2 near mile marker 206. The turn off is near a steel-sided garage that is a light yellow-beige color. A small sign on the fence post at the trun reades RWR. Further in on the road, follow the signs to the Rising Wolf Ranch, taking care to leave gates open if they are open and close any stock gates that are closed when you arrive. The road veers to the right and down to a creek with a narrow steel deck bridge, and then past a barn and through a timber gate - again leave the gate as you find it - open or closed. The road then enters the woods for another 1/2 mile before arriving at the Ranch. Signs will direct you to the right to park. Do not drive onto the lawn. Register with MSL staff in the old Lodge closest to the river to get your room assignment.
