- Directions: Take Highway 16 to Cave Mountain Road (County Road 3595). There is a large National Forest for the Upper Buffalo Mountain Bike Trails at this intersection. Stay on Cave Mountain Road for 3.4 miles until you reach a Y in the road with five mailboxes. Go right. Immediately start counting the left turns off this road. The first one turns sharply to the left, so stay right. The second one doesn’t even look like much because it is an access road to bike trails, so keep going past it. The third one looks more like the main road, but it’s not so keep right again. At this point the road narrows more and after about four curves you’ll reach another Y. Go left. You will come to an open green gate. Go through the gate and up a little hill. Stay to the left and then veer back right to go past an old house on the right and a pond on the left. From here the road splits. Go left, You’ll go through a field with solar panels on your right and then back into the woods. There will be a road going up a hill with a metal sign saying “Buffalohead Campground.” Go left. You’ll reach another Y really quickly. Stay right. From here it’s 1.7 miles to the house. It will seem like you are on the wrong road because it’s narrow and winding, but you are almost there. Eventually you will pass an old, half-built structure on the right. Just keep going and you’ll drive right up to the front of the house.
