Highway 89 runs through Truckee.

  1. From Interstate 80 take Highway 89N exit towards Sierraville.
    • From the west (Sacramento) take exit 188B.
    • From the east (Reno) take exit 188.
  2. Go fourteen miles.  Look for a sign that says "Independence Lake, Weber Lake, Jackson Meadows".  Turn left (this is the Little Truckee Summit trailhead).
  3. Follow the tarred road for nearly one and a half miles.  Take a left onto Independence Lake road (a gravel/dirt road).  You will soon cross a bridge over the Little Truckee River.
  4. After one half mile you will come to a crossroad.  Go straight through.
  5. After nearly a half a mile there is a Y-junction.  Stay to the right.
  6. Another Y-junction is one tenth of a mile further along.  Stay to the left.  This dips down and you will drive through a small stream.
  7. A further half a mile and our gravel driveway will be on your right.  You will see our Mitchells Mountain Meadows sign.

*** It's a total of three miles from Highway 89 to our cabin ***
