At the intersection of Highway 8 (Tualatin Valley Highway) and 10th Avenue, turn west (right) onto Highway 8 (Tualatin Valley Highway), and go west to the east end of the City of Forest Grove. You will pass through the City of Hillsboro, City of Cornelius, and arrive at the east end of the City of Forest Grove, where Highway 47 meets Highway 8. You will see a major intersection, complete with signage directing you to Henry Hagg Lake (look for a large Ace Hardware store on the left).
Take Highway 47 (south) towards the City of Gaston for approximately 5.9 miles, until you arrive at the intersection of Highway 47 and Scoggins Valley Road. There will be a flashing yellow light. Turn right on Scoggins Valley Road, and head west for approximately one and a half miles. You will pass the Lake Stop Store, Stimson's Lumber Mill, and finally arrive at the Park Entrance Fee Booth.
