NOTE: The map to the right shows how to get to the monastery from Manton. Google does not automatically get the route right, so be sure to use this map, or download our guest information for correct directions, so you don’t get lost trying to find roads that don’t exist.

Of further note with regards to the directions:

  1. The map indicates a distance of 4.7 miles along Forward Rd., which is the distance from the store to the monastery. But the critical distance is from the store to Ponderosa Way, since it’s easy for someone to miss that turnoff, especially after dark. Indicating the 3.8 mile distance to Ponderosa Way is what’s really needed here. Once someone makes that turn the rest of the distance is obvious from the sign on the corner, and the monastery entrance sign is hard to miss.
  2. For anyone traveling from the north along Wilson Hill Rd., it should be emphasized that a turn to the right, not to the left, should be made onto Rock Creek Rd., and then a left turn onto Forward Rd.
