Driving Directions

Sylvan Dale is 7 miles west of Loveland on US Highway 34 (also called Eisenhower Blvd.). Take Highway 34 west all the way through Loveland and continue west as the highway winds out of Loveland. Just before Sylvan Dale, the highway takes an uphill turn to the right and widens with a passing lane. Watch for the covered wagons on the right (North) side of the road. The wagons will signal that you are approaching the ranch entrance on your right. Turn right at the wooden Sylvan Dale Ranch signs. [If you miss the first entrance, turn right just before the Dam Store, continue down the road, and turn left in front of the stables.]

To get to the Office and Heritage Building: Follow signs to the Ranch office. Cross the river and turn right just over the bridge. Follow along the river and then the road bears left between two buildings. Continue on this road and you’ll see a row of diagonal parking. Park there and walk north to the Heritage building. The office is just inside the double doors.


To get to the Hilltop Parking Lot (not the office): cross the river and continue straight up the big hill. At the top of the hill, the road flattens out. The Hilltop Parking Lot is the large gravel lot to your right.
