Kowana Valley Folk School


kowana-walkWe are in the middle of the National Forest on Bull Creek Rd.  We are 11 miles south of Buck Meadows or 11 miles east of the town of Greeley Hill, where there is a well stocked food market as well as gas stations.  We are 25 miles from the Crane Flat entrance to Yosemite National Park. We are a 3-4 hr drive from the San Francisco Bay area, a 3 hr drive from Sacramento, and 2 ½ hrs from Fresno.  The last 4 miles of your journey here is a county maintained dirt road; in the dry months your car will get dusty.

Do not use GPS to find – It will mislead you. Print and use the maps found below.

Important note for those with medical conditions:

Being in the middle of the national forest and off the main roads, medical response time is longer than usual.  The nearest hospital is in Sonora, about an hour away.  First responders would be 30 minutes away.  Please keep this under consideration if you need to be close to medical help.
