The Jarbidge Canyon Retreat Center @ Deer Creek is four miles north of Jarbidge. 

 

Coming from Twin Falls or Elko via Rogerson, you’ll drop into the canyon and pass through Murphy’s Hot Springs (a small village).  Soon after, the road makes a left turn at “the Forks.”

 

Keep going and you’ll pass only two right turns with bridges that cross the river.  They are not marked, of course!  The first is Buck Creek and you’ll see a large green barrel mailbox for the Diamond A Ranch on the right.  Keep going.  The second, several miles beyond, is Deer Creek Grade (there’s a Road Closed sign at this turnoff).

 

 Just past the Deer Creek Grade turnoff, you’ll see a wood pole fence on the right.  Continue to the end of the fence and there you’ll see a black mailbox, a large turnout and two gates on the right.  On your left, you’ll see a road going uphill. Take that road up the hill to the gate. We have provided you with the combination. Open the gate, drive through and close and lock it after you. Drive on to the top and park in front of the third overhead door. The Eagle’s Nest is on the north end of the building we call The Long House.

 

Coming from Elko/Mountain Home via Hwy 225/Charleston you’ll land in the town of Jarbidge and proceed north toward Idaho.  About four miles out of town, you’ll see a large turnout/parking area on the left (see black mailbox, wood fence and two gates) and a road going uphill on the right.  Take that road up the hill to the gate. We have provided you with the combination. Open the gate, drive through and close it after you. Drive on to the top and park in front of the third overhead door. The Eagle’s Nest is on the north end of this building we call The Long House.

 

Coming from Elko/Mountain Home via Hwy 225/Gold Creek, you’ll be heading south towards Jarbidge. Look for a right turn with a bridge that crosses the river, about 6-8 miles up the road, at the turnoff to Deer Creek Grade (there’s a Road Closed sign at this turnoff).

 

 Just past the Deer Creek Grade turnoff, you’ll see a wood pole fence on the right.  Continue to the end of the fence and there you’ll see a black mailbox, a large turnout and two gates on the right.  On your left, you’ll see a road going uphill. Take that road up the hill to the gate. We have provided you with the combination. Open the gate, drive through and close and lock it after you. Drive on to the top and park in front of the third overhead door. The Eagle’s Nest is on the north end of the building we call The Long House.
