How to get to the Gem Hunt

Destination and Directions

The Historic Old Road Camp
48242 Los Gatos Rd. Coalinga, CA 93210

Recommended Route:
1) From the westernmost stoplight in Coalinga, head west on Polk/Jayne Avenue for one mile.
2) Polk/Jayne Avenue will make a large sweeping turn to the right, becoming Derrick Avenue. Follow Derrick Avenue for three miles.
3) Turn left on Los Gatos Road, continue west exactly fifteen miles. Turn in just before the white buffalo on the right-hand side and you're there!

The white buffalo in our parking lot is the best landmark to look for.

Be careful if you're planning to travel in from the Highway 25/Coalinga Rd route. The road is not well maintained.
