From the river bridge between the town of Fort Laramie and Fort Laramie National Historic Site, travel west .7 mile and turn right on Goshen County Road 92, a gravel road. In 1.2 miles, turn right. The grave is another .2 mile north. From the entrance to the Fort Laramie National Historic Site, the road leading to the grave is a left turn after one mile.
While rugged, the route is passable by passenger vehicles. Signs erected by the Wyoming Bureau of Land Management provide general directions to both the grave and the Bedlam Ruts, further up the hill above and to the west of the Homsley grave. The Bedlam Ruts are administered by the Bureau of Land Management.
