Our Main Gate is located at 1552 Bancroft Road, but due to limited parking near the Office, we ask that you park at our North Entrance (the second entrance as you drive down Bancroft Road). Park in the gravel turnout in front of the Folly (the green gazebo) or on the left shoulder of the driveway under the eucalyptus trees. When those areas are full, continue to the back property, where the road gets wider, and park under the trees.
