Coming from the East (the easy way): On Route US 22 about 1.5 miles east of the turnpike, take Route 286 East (Golden Mile Highway). Go for about 1.7 miles and turn left on New Texas Road (at Burger King). This road takes a 90 degree right in about 0.1 miles and you need to bear left after another 0.4 miles.

Instead, follow Tressle Rd for an additional 0.5 miles; you will come to Route 380, Saltsburg Rd (at stop sign). Turn right (east) and go 1.3 miles to New Texas Rd (at stop sign). Turn right on New Texas; the entrance to the park is only about 200 yards on the right; go just past the tennis courts and park on the right. We will start from the ------------ Shelter, watch for the orienteering club banner.
