Drive to Road (not Lane) 19 located on the Cody-Powell Highway 14A. This is approximately 13 miles from Cody and 11 miles from Powell.
You’ll see the two big cottonwoods and also the brown sign for the Heart Mountain Relocation Center. Head west toward Heart Mountain on Road 19. It will bend sharply to the right and a little later to the left as Road 19 all the sudden becomes Lane 13 ½.
Stay on Lane 13 ½ heading west towards Heart Mountain. Do not turn again. The pavement will turn to gravel at Road 22 and you will see a large white sign welcoming you to the ranch (this sign is approximately 5 miles from where you turned off the main highway between Powell and Cody)—keep heading west past the sign.
You will cross several cattle guards and then you will cross a bridge over a large canal. Immediately after crossing the bridge, you will see an informational kiosk and a gate. Please sign in here before proceeding to the trailhead.
After signing in, you will travel through the sagebrush flat for approximately 3 miles. You will cross a couple more cattle guards.
You will come to a fork in the road but do not turn off. Stay on the main road and you will come to the trailhead where there is a parking area and a building. This is where the trail starts.
