From the Loop-101, take the Cave Creek Road exit. Head north on Cave Creek Road for just over 12 miles. On the north side of Cave Creek Road is Spur Cross Road. Take Spur Cross Road 4 miles north to the small parking area of Jewel of the Creek Preserve. Jewel of the Creek Preserve is noticable as you are pulling up, as large cottonwoods come into view. The parking area will be on the west side of Spur Cross Road.
