Directions to Medicine Circle Eco-Retreat

From Spokane, Washington:

From Coeur d'Alene, Idaho:
Take I-95 North to Sandpoint. From Sandpoint take Hwy 2 west 22 mi. to Priest River. Follow the directions (below) from Priest River.

From Priest River, Idaho:
The odometer readings are crucial to these directions!
Turn north on Hwy 57 (stoplight) following signs to Priest Lake. Just past the 12 mile marker, turn right on Quartz Creek Road. Stay on Quartz Creek Road for 3 to 3.2 miles and turn left at the "Y" or “T” onto FSR 239 (you’ll see a little brown sign on the right).
Go approximately .2 (two tenths) of a mile and look for a sign on your left that says “Medicine Circle”. Turn left at the sign (before fence posts) onto a dirt road through a meadow. (If you reach a driveway on the right leading to a house, you've gone too far and need to turn around and find the meadow turn-off.)
Stay on this dirt road (.5 mi) until it dead ends at Medicine Circle (you’ll pass driveway turnoffs on both sides). You will see a sign directing you to the parking area.
