From Cave Creek Rd and Carefree Highway:

From the intersection of Carefree Highway and Cave Creek Road head north on Cave Creek Road about 2.5 miles to Spur Cross Road.

Turn north for approximately 4.5 miles to the public parking area.

 - After 3 miles the road turns to all-weather graded. The last 1.5 miles can be confusing; continue north on the graded road past the green house, through the tall gateposts and on past the horse corrals to the signed public parking area on the right.

There is a closed gate that marks the entrance to the conservation area.  Parking is just before the gate on the right.
