From Missoula - take Highway 93 north toward Glacier National Park (another fun site). Continue to the fifteen mile marker and an historical marker sign - no this is not for Shy Bear Farm! The highway curves left - this is commonly called Dirty Corner - turn right at this point on to Coldwater Lane continuing about 1 mile to the stop sign. Turning is required - go right and continue a couple miles or so and, as the Jocko Road that you are traveling on curves to the left, - go straight - this eventually turns into a gravel road. Altho’ there are no road signs, this is called Blodgett Lane and curves once to the right, then after a quarter mile, turns to the left and goes uphill. Just beyond the crest of the hill, watch for Shy Bear Farm signs to your left. They mark a mile long driveway that is an adventure in itself. Continue about 1/8 mile - dare to go over the cattle guard, keep left as the second sign will hopefully point out and continue to the top of the ridge. There you drop down to the back side of the ridge staying to the left when you come to a little fork in the road. Continue to the end of the road and Shy Bear Farm. There may be vehicles parked along the lower section of this road. If so, it may mean parking lot is full. Come on in, check out the parking situation and, if necessary, drive back out and find a parking area along the side of the road.  From points north of Arlee, continue through Arlee mile and turn left onto Jocko Road (at electrical substation). Continue east to Blodgett Lane. Continue as above.
