Northeast of Hulbert, OK.
Directions: From WAGONER, continue east on Highway 51. WATCH THE SIGNS FOR 51 CAREFULLY THROUGH WAGONER - the road turns a few times.
Continue east on 51. Cross Lake Fort Gibson. Pass the entrance to Western Hills Lodge. ON THE LEFT pass huge nursery and firewood lot. About a mile past the firewood lot, you come to a crossroads.
There are three or four signs here for churches, a 4H arena, etc. A green sign reading "Clear Creek Road" marks this corner.
TURN LEFT (north) at this corner onto Clear Creek Road. (If you come to the bridge on Highway 51 that crosses Fourteen Mile Creek, you have missed Clear Creek Road - go back.)
Go north on Clear Creek. Road. Pass general store (last chance for gas).
AT FIRST STOP SIGN, turn right (east). Pass firehouse on left. TURN LEFT AT FIRST INTERSECTION PAST FIREHOUSE. (People constantly miss this turn, as there is no landmark or sign of any kind, not even a sign warning of the intersection.)
Continue north on paved road. After about three miles, you cross Clear Creek on a low-water bridge - a concrete slab. AT END OF PAVEMENT, make sharp left turn up the hill onto gravel road. Do not turn left till the pavement runs out.
Follow the road up the hill and around for a mile or so. At the top of the hill, you will come to the Clear Creek Monastery entrance on the left. The gate is set back from the road, and is easy to miss at night.
It's one mile and a half from the gate to the monastery. You turn right at the "Y" (going Northwest). This scenic road leads down hill, across the monastery's stone bridge, back up to the monastery. The Gatehouse is very visible, near the parking lot. Just sound the doorbell.
