NOTES ABOUT DRIVING TO EARTHRISE –
Please be aware that Road Construction has altered our exit off of 101. If you have been with us in the past, please do not rely on your GPS devices as the routes have changed.

When Google, MapQuest & GPS devices do get you to EarthRise, they typically direct you to the Institute of Noetic Sciences entry gate as though that is your final destination. To finish your journey to EarthRise, pass through the gate and drive along the meadow until you come to the green road signs that direct you up the hill to the left.

If you look at Google driving directions you have the added benefit of real photographic images (at a dry time of year) that might be helpful.
