Road, You will see a “Bright Yellow Smiley Face” water tower located at the
turn, Go 1 mile and then turn right on Shepard Lane, It’s kinda easy to miss if
you’re not looking for it, so please watch for a row of mailboxes on the left and
Sheppard Lane is directly across the road from them, continue 1.2 miles then
