GETTING TO THE PALACE: The Palace is about 15 miles up the Poudre Canyon from Ted's Place (where CO Highway 14 turns off of CO 287), just past Mishawaka and the tunnel. The palace is a short approach that requires crossing the Poudre River. Bring some sandals and a towel for the adventure.
PARKING: Since parking is limited, please plan on parking at the Mishawaka and caravaning with friends to the Palace. If driving, past the rock tunnel, park in the second pullout on the right. It's important that the parking area can still be used as a slow-vehicle turnout. This requires parallel parking around the edge, even though diagonal parking might accommodate more vehicles. If there isn't room, please park in the first pull out next to the tunnel.
