From Porterville go east on Hwy 190 through Springville and turn left at the Big White Barn onto Balch Park Road. Go about 5.4 miles north on Balch Park Road. You will pass Bear Creek Road then Harris Road on the right and Blue Oak on the left. (Look for a large decorative windmill in a front yard just past Blue Oak). Continue a few hundred yards and look for "Royer Oaks" on a mailbox on the left across from a small but prominent boulder on the right. Turn left on the private road and look for the house with the observatory dome.
