Turn onto Dougherty Road from Highway 40.

Follow this road and please be kind to our neighbors by driving slowly and watching for children.

Dougherty Road will turn into dirt and you will see a wooden Wild West Balloon Adventures sign.

Continue past the sign, over the bridge, and into our launch field where we will have coffee waiting for you.
