*** Please note that Mormon Emigrant Trail (not featured on map below) is closed during winter...This road will likely pop up as the fastest route on your GPS system, so make sure to select an alternate option if traveling in winter or early spring! Also, if your navigation system delivers directions including the use of Shake Ridge Road or Fiddletown Road, select an alternate route. These roads are both very narrow, curvy, and steep - in some areas they have limited or no snow removal and poor cellular service in event of emergencies.

We're lucky at Kirkwood to be situated in close proximity to three major airports...  Reno-Tahoe International (RNO) is the closest, followed by Sacramento International (SMF), and San Francisco International (SFO).
