By car: If you are driving to the ranch we will send you a map with detailed directions. Please, do not depend on your navigation system, Google maps, etc. They have never actually been to Burnt Well and don’t know the roads or most efficient or scenic route to the ranch. We’ve lived here over 60 years, collectively, and know the best ways to bring you in, as well as the current road conditions. Please, trust us on this! And, no you won’t be able to call if you get lost, because there is little to no cell phone service once you leave pavement, 19 miles from the ranch.
