DIRECTIONS: the ranch can be reached only from Highway 76. You can take the 5 frwy or 15 frwy to the 76 EAST. From there you will go 1 1/2 miles past the Pala Casino and make a left on Magee Road. (Magee road is a little road that is poorly marked) You head north on Magee road, climbing up 3 1/2 miles ... (It feels like a very long time) Once you see a little yellow house on the left we are directly across on the right behind the gates down a long driveway! *Please note: Any other direction other than Highway 76 will probably lead you to a locked gate on the other side of Magee road. INCLUDING MAPQUEST!!!!
