Local Directions:

From I-40, take exit 86 for NC 226 (Marion/Shelby). Head south on NC 226, and at the first stoplight for College Dr., take a right. College Dr. soon makes a right-hand bend, then meets a T-intersection, where you turn left and cross a railroad track to continue on College Dr. Follow the road for about 0.5 miles, until reaching a fence/gate. Immediately before this gate, the parking area is on the right. Follow the walking path on the other side of the road to find the first tee.
