Take I-5 South to Exit 181. Stay in the LEFT lane of the exit (196th EAST), and following the curve of the exit enter onto 196th St. SW. Stay in the right lane, crossing over I-5, and take the first right onto Poplar Way. Turn right onto 204th St. SW at the 2nd light, go about ¼ mile and turn left onto Larch Way.
