From The East (Chicago) – Approaching from the east on Hwy. 20 just past the town of Elizabeth turn right (north) onto Elizabeth/Scales Mound Road. Drive approximately 9.5 miles to Cording Road and turn left. Go west on Cording Road for 1 mile to Hawk Valley Retreat. Please note: The house numbers are out of sequence; look for our sign at the end of our driveway which is located at the bottom of the valley.
**IMPORTANT** If you are coming from the east on Hwy. 20 and are using a GPS, MapQuest, or other map assistance program, please do not get off Hwy. 20 until the town of Elizabeth OR program the town of Elizabeth as a stop/through point. Your GPS and MapQuest are correct but will route you through many country backroads which are not well marked, making your trip longer in drive time and especially difficult to follow at night.
From The West (Galena) – From Hwy. 20 in Galena, turn north onto Main Street and go to the second stop sign (Meeker Street). Turn right onto Meeker Street (which becomes Stagecoach Trail) and continue approximately 7 miles to Cording Road. Turn right onto Cording Road and drive 1.5 miles to Hawk Valley Retreat. Look for our sign on the left side of the road at the end of our drive.
