Driving directions from the Hickory Street bridge in Warren (26 miles; about 40 minutes): go west on Pennsylvania Ave W/US-6 (business route) along the Allegheny River. US Hwy 62 will join with US 6 before you leave Warren and the highways will become a free-access 4-lane. Drive through Starbrick and continue west on US 6 through Youngsville and on to Pittsfield. There the road will branch. Bear left onto Rt. 27 which will take you to the village of Garland. Continue on Rt. 27, exiting Garland, over a bridge spanning Brokenstraw Creek. Begin looking for Mickle Hill Road on the right. Follow it over hill and dale to the end where it T's into Oil Creek Road. Turn right and in less than a mile, on the right, will be the cemetery.
To park, drive to the end of the cemetery where there's a dirt track into the grounds leading to a small wooden maintenance shed.
