Directions: Take Big Hill Road/Prospect St./Hwy. 21 east out of Berea. This is the road between Union Church and Boone Tavern Hotel. Follow it until it ends at Hwy. 421 and the Big Hill Food Mart/Gas Station. Turn right. In about 100 yards, take the first left (follow sign for Hwy. 21). Go about 2 miles. After you pass a horse farm on the right (Owsley Fork Petting Zoo), the road will fork. Take the right-hand fork, Radford Hollow Rd.

After about half a mile, you will pass the New Earth Healing Center sign and red mailbox on the right. Go on to park at the gravel boat ramp lot on the left, or along the road, then walk up the trail by the mailbox. Look for the orange house.
