SUNNYSIDE
Township: Beaver
Location: NE 1/4 of Section 11, Township 11, Range 7
Directions: From Lincoln, go east on the golf course road (Milo Rd.) to 220th Rd. (a T intersection). Turn left (north). Go to Navajo Rd. and turn right (east). Stay on that road as it curves and goes north again, perhaps 2 miles. The next turn is near the top of a hill; it is Quail Rd. but there was no marker as of June 2007. Before the turn you'll pass several dead trees in the pasture on the east side of the road; they are white and very distinctive. Turn right (east) at that road and slowly follow it. About a mile down the road, there is a "road" on the left (north) side of the road. It will look more like a cattle feeding turnout than a road. Across the road on the south side is an abandoned limestone house so look for it. Turn onto this "road" and follow it up the hill and Sunnyside is at the top. This is not a very good road; I would not attempt this in a low-riding car. ALSO, I would not attempt to visit Sunnyside in wet weather or if it has recently rained, as Quail Road is mostly dirt and would be pretty unpassable when wet.
