Anywhere north of Anaheim:

Take your easiest route to I 15. Take I 15 south to Temecula and take the second Hwy. 79 turn off. This is Hwy. 79 SOUTH. Take Hwy. 79 south all the way (about an hour) to a small town called Santa Ysabel. You will have to turn. Turn left. Go about 6 miles (you will be about 1 mile from downtown Julian). You will see a large sign for Pine Hills Lodge and Dinner Theater, also a county sign indicating William Heise County Park. You are at Pine Hills Road, turn right. Go about a mile to Deer Lake Park Road and turn left. Our address is 4110 Deer Lake Park Road. It is on the right about a mile up Deer Lake Park Rd.

Take I5 to 76 East. You will run into Hwy. 79 south. Turn right and follow directions above.

From North County San Diego
Take Hwy. 78 to I 15 South. Get off on Via Rancho Parkway. Go east around behind North County Fair. Turn right on San Pasqual (by the High School, like going towards Wild Animal Park). You will come to Old San Pasqual Road. Turn right. You will pass a dairy and run into San Pasqual again. (But will have cut 10 minutes off your trip!) Believe or not you are back on Hwy. 78. Stay on it and it will take you to Ramona. When you get to Ramona, turn left. This will take you to Julian and you will run into Hwy. 79. Then follow the directions above.
