Directions: From the Eureka Lodge parking lot look left across the highway where you’ll see a cluster of gray buildings. Beyond the tallest spruce tree behind them you can see a long hogback ridge about 10 miles to the southeast. That is Heavenly Ridge and is your destination. The property we are selling is directly in line with that tree at the foot of a canyon that runs down about the center of the ridge, the one with a sheer rock cliff just to the left edge of it. From Eureka drive east on the Glenn another 9 miles and park off to the left across from Milepost 137 which is just before the hill that goes down to the bridge crossing Little Nelchina River. Take snowmachine trail to south about 2½ miles to mouth of a creek you will be following until it opens up onto the wide flood plain of the Nelchina River. Bear left on main trail at creek mouth and cross the Nelchina River. Trail on opposite side of river goes into a narrow cut in the bank. Follow this slough about a mile to where it bears sharply left into the woods and up through a narrow gulch. Follow this trail another 2 miles past the 2 posted property signs and then sharply down the hill and onto Upper Twin Lake. Bear right and follow lake edge around to opposite side of lake. Continue east along lake until you come to a dock. This is the property you are looking for!
