   Getting There

The HideOut’s address is 43300 Highway 88, Kirkwood, CA. There is a 2-mile dirt road getting into the HideOut, so allow extra travel time for that.

Just a reminder: there is no cell service at the HideOut or on Hwy 88 around that area. If you're nervous about not having phone service, HERE Maps is an app that does offline GPS maps and audio navigation — so you don't need service to see maps or get directions. Maps.me is another alternative, but that won't do audio navigation — it will just show the directions on your phone. Once you download either app, you will need to download the California map at home or before you go out of cell service.

To get to the HideOut from Kirkwood or from the East: Turn left out of Kirkwood on Hwy 88 West. Drive 13.5 miles. The entrance to the HideOut (43300 Hwy 88) will be on your left. There should be big wooden bears marking the entrance. If you reach Peddler Hill Maintenance Station, you have gone too far. Turn around and drive back about 3.25 miles. Once you turn into the driveway, you'll go about 2 miles on a dirt road. When you get to the lake, turn right and drive over Pucker Butt Hill. Just park next to the other cars in the field.

To get to the HideOut from the West / Bay Area: Make your way to I-580 East. I-580 turns into I-205 East, continue on that for 15 miles. Merge onto I-5 North, and take that for 12 miles. Take the exit for CA-4 East toward Downtown Stockton, and follow it for 3 miles. Then take CA-99 North for 2 miles. Take the Waterloo Road exit toward Jackson / Hwy 88. Follow Hwy 88 for 19 miles. Then turn left to follow Hwy 88 for another 19 miles. Then turn left onto Ridge Rd., and follow it for 7 miles. Turn left again to stay on Ridge Rd, and take it for another 3 miles. Then turn left on Hwy 88 East, and follow it for 34 miles. The entrance for the HideOut (43300 Hwy 88) will be on your right. There should be big wooden bears marking the entrance. If you come to the Mormon Emigrant Trail sign, you have gone too far. Turn around and come back 1.7 miles. Once you turn into the driveway, you'll go about 2 miles on a dirt road. When you get to the lake, turn right and drive over Pucker Butt Hill. Just park next to the other cars in the field.

To get to the HideOut from the Northwest / Sacramento: Take Hwy 50 East. Exit at Sly Park Rd, turn right, and continue on Sly Park Rd. for 4.6 miles. Then turn left onto Mormon Immigrant Trail, and follow it for 24.6 miles. Then turn right onto Hwy 88 West and go 1.5 miles. The entrance for the HideOut (43300 Hwy 88) will be on your left. There should be big wooden bears marking the entrance. If you reach Peddler Hill Maintenance Station, you have gone too far. Turn around and drive back about 3.25 miles. Once you turn into the driveway, you'll go about 2 miles on a dirt road. When you get to the lake, turn right and drive over Pucker Butt Hill. Just park next to the other cars in the field.

From the airports:

To get to Kirkwood, you have several options for airports. Unfortunately, none are super close (and there isn’t any public transit between the airport and Kirkwood), so you will need to rent a car. All of these routes will involve mountain driving, so watch out for sharp turns, deer, and other critters!

From Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) to Kirkwood: RNO is the closest to Kirkwood and the HideOut. It is about an hour and forty minute drive to Kirkwood (and 2 hours from the HideOut). The drive is very scenic and follows the Eastern side of the Sierras until you enter California, when you drive into the mountains. However, flights into Reno are typically more expensive than flights to Sacramento or San Francisco, and there are fewer options.

To get from RNO to Kirkwood, drive South on I-580 for 24 miles. Take Exit 43 for US 395 Business / North Carson St. Continue for 6 miles on North Carson St. Continue for 10 miles on US 395 South. Take a slight right for Hwy 88 South. Continue on Hwy 88 for 32 miles. Kirkwood will be on your left.

From Sacramento Airport (SMF) to Kirkwood: SMF is the second closest to Kirkwood and the HideOut. From the Sacramento airport, Kirkwood is about a two hour and twenty minute drive (or about 2 hours to the HideOut). Flights into Sacramento are typically more expensive than flights to San Francisco, but they’re often cheaper than flights to Reno.

To get from SMF to Kirkwood, drive South on I-5 for 9 miles. Take the exit for CA 99 / I-305 East / US 50 East toward Fresno. Continue on US 50 East for 55 miles. Exit at Sly Park Rd, turn right, and continue on Sly Park Rd. for 4.6 miles. Then turn left onto Mormon Immigrant Trail, and follow it for 24.6 miles. Then turn left onto Hwy 88 East. Continue on Hwy 88 for 12 miles. Kirkwood will be on your right. (NOTE: Mormon Immigrant Trail is not plowed during the winter, but it is currently open. If you look up directions, don’t be alarmed by the warning saying that a road may not be open due to snow conditions.)

From San Francisco Airport (SFO) to Kirkwood: SFO is the furthest airport from Kirkwood and the HideOut, but it typically has the cheapest flights, and many more flights come into San Francisco than Reno or Sacramento. This will likely be the best option for international travelers (unless you want to connect elsewhere to make Sacramento or Reno your final destination). It is about a 3.5 hour drive from SFO to Kirkwood (but this is dependent on rush hour traffic getting out of the Bay Area).

To get from SFO to Kirkwood, drive South on Hwy 101 for 7 miles. Take the exit for Fashion Island Blvd toward Hayward / CA-92 East. Follow 92 East for 15 miles. Take Hwy 880 North toward Oakland for 3 miles. Then take I-238 South toward I-580 East / Castro Valley / Stockton. Continue onto I-580 East for 30 miles. The road turns into I-205 East, continue on that for 15 miles. Merge onto I-5 North, and take that for 12 miles. Take the exit for CA-4 East toward Downtown Stockton, and follow it for 3 miles. Then take CA-99 North for 2 miles. Take the Waterloo Road exit toward Jackson / Hwy 88. Follow Hwy 88 for 19 miles. Then turn left to follow Hwy 88 for another 19 miles. Then turn left onto Ridge Rd., and follow it for 7 miles. Turn left again to stay on Ridge Rd, and take it for another 3 miles. Then turn left on Hwy 88 East, and follow it for 47 miles. Kirkwood will be on your right.

Where to Stay

Kirkwood is a ski resort that is a 15-20 minute drive from The HideOut. Kirkwood is the best bet for lodging in the area, and it has plenty of condos and cabins where guests can stay. Shuttle service will be provided to and from the Kirkwood Mountain Resort all day Saturday. 

Pyramid Peak Properties has many types of rentals available, from studio condos to 6 bedroom homes. Renting a larger condo or home is a great option if you know others who are attending the wedding! Be sure to select the Kirkwood location on the website. Pyramid Peak Properties offers a 20% discount code for our guests. After you have selected a room or cabin, enter “HIDEOUT2017” in the Offer Code box when you check out.

VRBO also has several condo and home rentals available. Just be sure to search for Kirkwood, CA (and even then, Bear Valley and South Lake Tahoe rentals seem to sneak in there, so be careful!). Again, cabins are a great option for a group of guests.
