From Denver:Take I-70 to Silverthorne, take 9 north, to Kremmling,and take 40 towards Steamboat Springs when you get to Steamboat Springs stay on 40, follow through to Craig then use directions below.
From Craig, Colorado:Take HWY 40 west until you see mile marker 62. You know you will be getting close when you first go over the YampaRiver and see a barn with the statue of liberty on the right. You will see road signs that read Price Creek and Meeker, take a left, that road is HWY 57, go about 6-7 miles, you’ll go around several curves, ( once you pass a cattle loading area on the right which is Cook Ranch you will be able to see a flat top mountain at you’re 1:00 ( if it’s daytime, if it’s dark you will see one light that is our place ), you’ll be able to see a big blue water tank also, the tank is at our entrance ) then you’ll go around a curve just before County Road 59S ( blue sign ) mile marker 16, and you will also see a small skinny wooden sign that says R & R Ranch and Freeman Gulch Road on top of one another.Turn right here, keep going until you see County Road 59 and a building on the left in the middle of a field and a Bitter Brush sign on the right near a cattle loading area.You should see our large log entrance with a black R & R Ranch sign on top.Turn right through the entrance ( do not turn towards the house on top of the hill to your left ) keep going straight for 4 more miles until you come to our cabin, it has a green tin roof and we have a large bronze elk statue in our front yard ( don’t shoot it by mistake ).It is also the only house out here so you can’t miss it.Drive carefully.
If you choose not to go through Rabbit Ears Pass due to bad weather or road closures ( the Steamboat Springs route) stay on 70 from Denver to Rifle, turn right at Rifle HWY 13 towards Meeker just after you go over the White River ( which is the only river in the world that freezes from the bottom up ) you will come to HWY 64, turn left here, you will pass the Meeker DOW office on the right then turn right onCounty Road 7 and County Road 59 ( same road ) towards Maybell. Then follow directions from the underlined directions above but you’ll turn left at County Road 59 instead of right.
During the months of May-July
Please drive slowly due to baby sheep and baby antelopes.The baby sheep don’t always move out of the way, there sleep right in the middle of the road and the antelopes try to out run you and cross right in front of you.The baby antelopes sleep right by the side of the road near the ditches and run out in front of you to get away. Please don’t go over 25-30 MPH. Be sure not to hit the adult antelopes coming up from behind because you are watching the ones running in front of you.Watch the ditches and curves, the gravel can flip you too, be careful.
