From Interstate 5: Get off the freeway at Exit 55 (beginning of Highway 199) and travel about 30 miles to Cave Junction. Continue another four and a half miles past Cave Junction to where the road opens into four lanes. Get in the right lane and turn on Smokejumper Way and drive to where the road ends at the airport tarmac.
From Highway 101: From Crescent City, drive three miles north on Highway 101 and turn on to Highway 199. In about 35 miles you cross the Oregon border and five miles more you come to O’Brien, the first flashing yellow light you will see on Highway 199. Continue another three miles to where the road crosses the bridge over Rough & Ready Creek and widens into four lanes. Get in the left lane and make a left turn on to Smokejumper Way about a half mile past the bridge.
There is an assortment of both private and public camping facilities within a 30 mile radius of the Moon Tree Run. Only the public and nonprofit sites are mentioned below. Look at the sponsor list to the right for more options.
The communities closest to the event site have limited but unique lodging at the Oregon Caves Chateau and Out N About Tree House B&B. The communities that are closest to the event that offer a wider variety of lodging are Grants Pass and Crescent City. Allow about an hour to drive from these locations to the Moon Tree Run.
