Continue straight on 90, crossing Route 11/Lee Highway at the light, and on through the town of Rural Retreat. Cross the railroad tracks. As the road leaves town, it becomes Cedar Springs Rd. Continue south on Cedar Springs Rd until you get to the community of Cedar Springs (exactly 6.0 miles from the light at Route 11). Bear right in Cedar Springs, onto Route 614/Cedar Springs Rd, toward the town of Sugar Grove. Go 1/2 mile, turn right at the sign for A.R.E. Camp, onto White Rock Furnace Rd.  Continue on this gravel road across the cattle guard and through the farmyard. For Big House programs, turn left up the hill before the first cattle gate.
