Travel on U.S. 40 (Lincoln Ave.) through the downtown area and turn left on the west edge of the downtown area on 13th Street (Routt County Road 33 (RCR33) or Twentymile Road) at the Library. You will cross the Yampa River and railroad tracks. Follow RCR33 west and south about 20 miles. You will encounter a "T" intersection where County Road 179 joins RCR33 - turn to the right. You will also cross the intersection of County Road 179 near our Middle Creek Warehouse where RCR179 heads north - stay on the main paved road.
