Drive 6.4 miles on Piedra Road to the entrance of the San Juan National Forest. The pavement ends as you cross a cattle guard and enter the San Juan National Forest. The road name remains Piedra Road but the number changes to National Forest Road 631.
Continue on Piedra Road (FR 631) another 17 miles to the V.A. Poma Ranch sign. Take a hard left at the Ranch sign and proceed down the Ranch drive along the Weminuche River for about a half mile. At the bridge, take a right and follow the white fence another half mile or so to the Ranch House.
