By car

From the South
We are approximately 340 miles north of San Francisco on Hwy. 101 North. The drive takes no less than 6 hours, with the average time approximately 7 hours. If you drive Hwy. 1 from San Francisco, it may take 10 or 11 hours.

Approaching the hostel from the south on Hwy. 101, you'll pass through the tiny town of Klamath. When you drive across the Golden Bear Bridge over the Klamath River, you're about 7 miles away. Watch for the Trees of Mystery on your right -- they're 1.5 miles south of the hostel.

Both the hostel and the ocean appear suddenly around a right curve, and many drivers are distracted by the view of the ocean to the left, missing the hostel to the right. Watch the county mile markers on the side of the road, and at marker 12.53, turn right onto Wilson Creek Road. Take an immediate right into the hostel driveway.

The hostel is at the south end of the DeMartin Memorial Bridge over Wilson Creek, so if you cross that bridge, you've gone too far.

From the North
We are approximately 350 miles south of Portland via Interstate I-5, Hwy. 199, then Hwy. 101 South; or via Hwy. 18 from the Portland area to Hwy. 101 South. The coastal route will be slower as there are winding parts and it passes through several towns.

Approaching the hostel from the north on Hwy. 101, you'll pass through the town of Crescent City, then continue about 12 miles to the hostel. Watch the county mile markers on the side of the road, and at marker 12.53, turn left onto Wilson Creek Road. Take an immediate right into the hostel driveway.

The hostel is at the south end of the DeMartin Memorial Bridge over Wilson Creek. As you cross the bridge, sloping downward, the ocean appears on your right and the hostel appears on your left, on a small hill set back in the trees. If you see the Trees of Mystery on your left, you've gone too far.
