Breland old store, turn south onto Hwy 15 & Benndale Rd. about 6 miles to Synder Road (Forestry Rd. 305) go west to Cypress Creek, just across the bridge, a Forest road with a road closure bar across what used to be a road, just a walking trail. Go about a half mile; the road forks, take a right and go about another half mile and the cemetery is on the left, close to the road.
