*Please note due to COVID19 there will be no bathrooms available on tours*
From Asheville, take I-240E to I-40E toward Statesville. In 19.7 miles, take exit 73 for Old Fort.
At the end of the ramp, turn right onto Bat Cave Road. Drive .5 mile then turn left onto Old Fort Sugar Hill Road. After .7 mile make a slight right to stay on Old Fort Sugar Hill Road. In another 2.4 miles turn right onto Bethlehem Road (right after Silvers Welch Rd). Follow this road for 1.7 miles (.1 mile after the sign on the right for Hickory Nut Trace) to the small sign for #1685 on your left- the address sign is very small and hard to see! Turn in and in 450 feet you pass a cabin on the left. Then, in 100 feet, you will enter a patch of trees. In about another 100 feet, take a right turn into a field (see photo). If the trees open up on the left, you’ve gone too far. Drive 500 feet straight to a red barn (see photo). Your guide will meet you there.
