Getting Here

Our address is 101 San Antonio Road, Petaluma, CA 94952

Please be aware that Road Construction has altered our exit off of 101. Please do not rely on your GPS devices as they have not been updated for the recent changes in routes.

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.
