You will also see a sign for Laurel Ridge; there is pasture land on either side, on the slope of the mountain ahead you will see a large rock quarry.
Go about a mile, past the end of the pasture land.
On the right, immediately before the bridge over the river, is the stone gate with the signs for the Community of the Cross and Presbyterian Reformed Ministries International – that is our place!
Just before the gate and before crossing the bridge, on the left side of the road, are some places where you may park. Also, if you go over the bridge, on the right is our parking area enclosed with a split rail fence. Parking is very limited so you may want to park in these locations and walk in.
