From Highway 79 near Hermosa, SD turn west onto Hwy 40 then:
Drive approximately 4 miles. Turn left on 'Battle Creek Road' (gravel road). Go about 1/3 mile to a “T” then turn RIGHT and follow the small BHHEC signs to the main campus. (About 2 miles off of Hwy 40)
Drive approximately 6.2 miles. Turn LEFT onto 'Red Ridge Road' (gravel dirt road). Follow Red Ridge Road to the bottom of the valley and turn RIGHT at the "T" onto the main campus. (About .8 [8 tenths] mile off of Hwy 40) (NOTE: This road is closed during snow & ice.)
When you reach the Campus, the road becomes asphalt. On the left is Pine Lodge (staff housing), and on the right is Red Canyon Lodge (student, visitor, and B&B accommodations). When the road curves around the hill, you’ll be driving toward the Main Lodge. Turn right at the T, and go up the hill to the Lifestyle Medicine Center.
