Web-based maps are not always accurate; please use the directions below.

From Del Rio, go north on State Highway 277 for 45 miles, turn left on Dolan Creek Road (gravel) and go 18.6 miles to the SNA boundary. Dolan Creek Road is a rough 22-mile gravel/dirt county road with multiple low-water crossings. Use caution if you see flowing water! This is working ranch country, so please drive carefully and be mindful of loose livestock.

High-clearance vehicles with 8-ply rating minimum (to minimize flats and blowouts) are recommended. The nearest service station is 25 miles away and is not open all the time. The nearest full service station is 65 miles away.
