Directions to Twelfth Night at the Lodge in North Park

From the west, northwest/southwest:

Make your best way to PA Route 79 to Exit 68, Mt Nebo Road.

At the end of the exit ramp at the traffic light, turn east, up the hill, onto Mount Nebo Road, also known as the Yellow Belt. There are signs with a Yellow Circle on them to indicate the route. You will follow the Yellow Belt all the way to North Park, which is 7.8 miles from Rt. 79.

Continue on the Yellow Belt to the third traffic light. Turn left onto Ardnt Road, and go up the hill to the top.

At the T intersection at the top of the hill, turn left onto Reis Run Road, following the Yellow Belt. The road will change names several times on a random basis, watch for and continue to follow the Yellow Belt signs.

Eventually you will be on Ingomar Road, which leads you to North Park. At the light at the intersection of Ingomar Road and Babcock Boulevard, turn left. There will be a sign.

Continuation of directions is below.

From the east, northeast/southeast:

Make your best way to PA Route 8.

In either case, look for the intersection of Route 8 with Wildwood Road/Wildwood Road Ext. Wildwood Road is also known as the Yellow Belt, and there are signs with a Yellow Circle on them to indicate the route. There will be a McDonald's on the left, which is the southeast corner. Turn west onto Wildwood Road/Yellow Belt.

This road will change names randomly, continue to follow the Yellow Belt signs. Follow the Yellow Belt for 2.8 miles.

At the light at the intersection of Ingomar Road and Babcock Boulevard, turn right. There will be a sign.

Continuation of directions is below.

Continuation of directions

Go across the stone bridge over the lake and take the first left onto Pearce Mill Road. You will go 1.9 miles on this road.

Don't be fooled by the first turn on the right that seems to go up the hill, it is not plowed or salted. Keep going straight!

After 0.8 miles, you will see the Ice Rink on the left and a long parking area on the right. At the end of the parking area, turn right onto North Ridge Drive. There will be SCA signs at the bottom of the hill. Drive up to the Lodge at the top of the hill. Welcome!
