Directions to Pine Ridge Park (Pine Lodge)
About two miles east of Blairsville, US Route 22 and US Route 119 separate. From Route 22 going either east or west, take the exit for US 119 North. At the stop sign at the bottom of the ramp, turn left (not north on 119). Go for only 100-150 meters and turn left onto Old Route 22 (in front of the golf course). After about 0.1 miles, the road splits, bear right on Strangleford Rd. After about 0.4 miles at a sharp curve in a dip, Chestnut Ridge meets Strangleford Rd. Bear left and onto Chestnut Ridge Rd for another 1.2 miles to the entrance to Pine Lodge on the left. There will be red and white orienteering signs from the golf course to Pine Lodge entrance.
If you are coming south on
US Route 119, go under Route 22; about 100-150 meters past Route 22, turn
left onto Old Route 22 and proceed as described. See the map.
