The turns-off from Highway 6 (there are two of them) are about 20 km north of Ferndale, and 20 km south of Tobermory.
Route A, from the South: Drive north for roughly 20 km north of Ferndale on Highway 6 to the Hamlet of Miller Lake, which is 2 km (1.25 miles) north of
Route B, from the North or East: Dyers Bay Road, the main east-west road north of us, can be reached from Highway 6 20 km south of Tobermory, or from the East Road from Lion's Head and the Cape Chin area, or from the Hamlet of Dyers Bay. Brinkman's Road meets Dyers Bay Road just a few yards east of the junction with Highway 6. We are 1.6 km (one mile) south of Dyers Bay Road. Number 56 is on the left-hand (east) side.
Be careful of some maps! They can contain errors. Highway 6, Brinkman's Road, and Lindsay Road 30 make a triangle. The Hamlet of Miller Lake lies at the southwest corner, Dyers Bay Road at the northern corner. The best map is the official Grey-Bruce Official Visitors Map. The Daytrip Companion published by Tobermory Press has an excellent map too. These maps can be obtained at any visitor centre and in many stores.
Don't be confused by our geographic names! Northern Bruce Peninsula has its own distinctive approach to geographic naming. For example, Brinkman's Road is not at Brinkman's Corner. Brinkman' s Corner is the intersection of Dyers Bay Road and East Road, 4 km (2.5 miles) east of Brinkman's Road. These names honour two different branches of the pioneering Brinkman family. Another example: the Hamlet of Miller Lake is not at Miller Lake (the lake) or on Miller Lake Road (which leads to the lake). The Hamlet of Miller Lake and Lindsay Road 30, where you turn for Voyageur Storytelling, are 2 km (1.25 miles) north of Miller Lake Road.
Sorry about the confusion. It's historical.
