How to get to Crooked Kitty
HERE for a map.
Jayna and Jonny Gieber's Crooked Kitty Ranch
24205 NE Alvas Road
Battle Ground, WA
(We are about 40 minutes from Portland; 30 minutes from Vancouver.
If coming from the North, adapt these directions or use your GPS.)
FOLLOW DIRECTIONS EXACTLY:
- Take I-205 North or I-5 North across either bridge to Washington.
- If you take I-205 North...
Go to PADDEN PARKWAY EAST, take this exit and drive for a little over 4 miles to continue onto WARD ROAD. Drive 2.3 miles and the road becomes 182nd AVENUE. Continue on 182nd for about 2 miles and you'll pass through the little town of Hockinson. Drive another 2 miles and there will be a Y in the road. Turn RIGHT at the Y. This puts you onto RISTO ROAD (be careful at this intersection).
- If you take I-5 North...
Take the 179th STREET/CLARK CO EVENT CENTER exit. Stay straight off the exit through the light—it becomes 10th AVENUE. Stay on 10th until you get to 199th STREET. Turn right on 199th, and drive for approximately 6 miles, where the road becomes EATON BLVD. Continue on Eaton for a little over 2 miles until the road again becomes 199th Street, and keep going. Just after you pass 176th Avenue on your left, the road will curve sharply to the right and become RISTO ROAD. Do NOT continue on Eaton Blvd. The road will curve again to the left and you'll come to a Y in the road. Turn LEFT at the Y. This puts you onto the continuation of RISTO ROAD (be careful at this intersection).
Go 2.5 miles and take a LEFT on NE 227th AVENUE.
Go 0.6 miles and take a RIGHT on OSMAN.
Go 0.6 miles and take a RIGHT on 229th STREET.
Go 0.1 miles and take a LEFT on NE BERRY.
Go 0.5 miles and take a LEFT on ALVAS ROAD (private, gravel, bumpy road).
Go 0.3 miles—24205 is the 4th place on the RIGHT, with a wood and wire fence. Look for a branch with prayer flags on it in front of the gate, and enter.
Park or back in at an angle starting at the furthest end/northern part of parking strip nearest the house. Parking your car at a left angle makes pulling out easier. Bigger cars/trucks, please park in front of the fence off the road by pulling straight in to best utilize the space.
***DO NOT park on the LEFT/South side of Alvas Road, per neighbor request.***
