200 Miles from Downtown Portland

Assuming you are coming from Seattle/Bellevue, go north on I-405 and take the Woodinville exit onto State Route 522, the stay on 522 for approximately ten miles, until the road ends a US Highway 2. It ends with a 180 degree turn, and you'll want to turn left, eastbound, onto Highway 2. Pass on traffic light and turn right at the second, next to a Texaco mini-mart, on a road marked for Fall City; proceed through downtown Monroe and across the Snohomish River bridge. About 2 miles past the bridge you'll find a turn off to the right in a grove of poplars, marked with a big sign carrying lots of fine print for the Dept. of Corrections Honor Farm. Turn right, go through the the farm center, then turn left at the stop sign and proceed another quarter mile to a farm road turning sharply back on your left. Turn there and park off the main field along the fence - and you're there!
