Directions to the ranch are below! Please review the following information in its entirety:

We are excited to have you here at Avian Behavior International Ranch. We very much look forward to seeing you!

To maximize your experience with the animals and for tips on appropriate footwear, take a moment to review our Terms and Conditions here.

Below are the address, directions, and some helpful hints. We are on Google Maps which is a helpful navigation device. However, please read the directions, as your car’s built-in GPS might lead you the wrong way.

Step 1:

Once you are on Lake Wohlford Road, you will turn on to Guejito Road. There are signs to Hidden Valley Retreat on this turn.

Step 2:

After 1 mile, bear right on Old Guejito Grade Road.

Step 3:

After 0.7 miles you’ll see a round mirror, a big sign for the Hidden Valley Ashram, and a street sign for Melrose Ranch Road, and a very straight *dirt road* at which you will turn left (it’s called Melrose Ranch Road, not to be confused with the Melrose Ranch sign you already passed).

Step 4:

This 0.9 mile long road can get bumpy in some places, but stay straight and you will find the ranch, marked of course, with black metal bird address sign as the road comes to a T at the end.

Step 5:

Enter through the grey gravel driveway and you will find plenty of parking. Cellphone service can be spotty once you turn down Guejito road, but if you get lost please text or call us at:
