  • Note that there is currently a change in our usual driving directions due to a road closure between Olde Stage Road and James Canyon Drive. Make sure to check the detour directions below and plan your trip accordingly. 


Detour Driving Directions:

Follow the directions below. 
Plan on a 45 minute drive from North Boulder. 
  • Drive West on Lee Hill Dr from Broadway in Boulder.
  • Pass Wagonwheel Gap Rd.
  • Take a left onto Lee Hill Dr at the stop sign. **This is a key step. Ensure you turn here.
  • After about 15 min on Lee Hill Dr, Take a right onto Lefthand Canyon Dr. You can’t miss it because you can’t keep going straight.
  • After a couple minutes, you’ll hit the drivable section of the construction zone (the road becomes a dirt road and you’ll see big rock piles off to the left). When you hit the dead end inside the construction zone, take a left onto James Canyon Dr.  **This area sometimes presents additional delays. 
  • Everything is the same from here as in the original Cal-Wood Driving Directions map. After 10 min or so on James Canyon Dr you’ll get to Jamestown. The turn off for Cal-Wood (County Rd 87 – on the right – look for the Cal-Wood sign) is about 2 min after Jamestown proper.
  • Drive up County Rd 87 – It’s a dirt road, about a 10 min drive to our gate.  There are a few steep switchbacks. Drive very carefully and stay to the right as much as possible because there is a fair amount of traffic on the road. When passing oncoming traffic don’t go too far to the side because possible snow drifts (in winter or spring) may be hiding deep ditches (remaining 2013 flood damage) on either side of the road.
  • You’ll pass 2 gates on County Rd 87. One is a private residence, the other is Balarat Education Center. The third gate you will arrive at is the end of the road, and it’s our gate. You’ll see our sign. Drive in to the visitors parking. We look forward to seeing you!
