    I highly recommend using a GPS App to get you there the quickest way. I generally drive north on 410, which becomes highway 10. At highway 89 it becomes highway 19. You could also take the 400 north to 89 and then drive west to 19. Aim for Primrose. It’s just north of that.

Please note that terrain is uneven and can be slippery when wet.
