Continue 3/4 mile up the winding driveway to the Retreat (do not turn left into the upper Y.A.A. entrance). At the top, the road is paved. Drive up and park under the carport of the lodge, which is the large building on the right. Check in at the lodge front desk, unless you have made other arrangements with us. Thank you!
Warning! If you are using Map Qest, another online map provider, or a GPS, and it includes directions that involve Portnel Rd. or Little Bear Rd., do not follow them. Use our directions instead (or pack a sleeping bag).

Driving west on I-90, take exit 305 (Bozeman 19th Street) south through town and out. Total distance about 10 miles.
The road will come to a "T" at Cottonwood Rd. Turn left (south) and proceed on winding road about 2.1 miles. Look for Cottonwood Canyon Rd. off to left. Cottonwood Canyon Rd. is a gravel road, and you will know you are almost there when you take a hard left, go down a steeper section of Cottonwood Rd. and take a hard right.
Take Cottonwood Canyon Rd. 1.0 miles looking for a large Yellowstone Alliance Adventures sign on the right; you will also see two large hitching-post style entryways made from logs. Turn right and drive under the entryway with the "Welcome" sign.
