H-01 goes south one mile then turns right for 1/4 mile before turning south again. FR 2599 connects with H-01 before it turns south. Follow the signs on FR 2599. At the first fork be sure to turn right and go over the railroad tracks. The kilns are a little over a mile down FR 2599. Be alert for on-coming traffic! It is about a 300 foot walk from where the road is blocked to the kilns. Once you get the kilns, the ground is rocky and uneven, and kilns are unstable Stay a safe distance away from them.
