Coming from 520:

  • Continue until the end of 520, and continue on Avondale Rd.
  • After about 1 mile, bear right onto Novelty Hill Rd. Continue straight through the first traffic circle and stay on Novelty Hill Road for about 5 miles.

  • Drive 10 MPH down 268th Ave NE for another 1/2 mile. It will feel like a long stretch, and you’ll pass some private property signs. Keep driving!
  • At the very end of the road, turn left at the Oxbow sign and follow the gravel road to the Oxbow parking lot.
  • Note to Buses: Once you have entered into the parking lot, please park on the gravel pad on the right. DO NOT park on the grass – you might get stuck in mud!
