From the South (Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego as well as Las Vegas and Arizona)
Get to the US-101 and take it headed North. Exit at CA-154 W/San Marcos Pass Rd. and turn right. Continue for about 17 miles.
The main entrance is on the left, approximately 4 miles past the Rancho San Marcos Golf Course turnoff. (The entrance is directly opposite the 16.3 mile marker and a roadside telephone.) The exit is marked with two signs, both on the left side of the road: a log embedded in the bank says "Rancho Alegre" and a large white hanging sign is marked "Outdoor School". (For safety reasons - due to the turnoff being at the crest of a hill - we recommend that you pass this location and make a U-Turn one-half mile down the road.)
From the North (San Luis Obispo, Monterey, San Francisco, Sacramento, etc.)
Get to the US-101 and take it headed South. Exit at CA-154 E/San Marcos Pass Rd. and turn left. Continue for about 17 miles.
The main entrance is on the right about a mile past the Cachuma Lake entrance and approximately one-half mile beyond the "Rancho Alegre" sign. (DO NOT turn at this sign, unless you are going to Larsen Meadow.) Slow after cresting the hill, because the exit is not visible until you are nearly there AND it is a sharp right turn. Directly opposite the entrance on your left is a roadside emergency telephone at mile marker 16.3.
For Those Flying
The closest airport to travel into is Los Angeles International (LAX) - which is about two hours away. Please let us know if you are flying in and need transportation as we can connect you with Brothers who can help give a ride! Otherwise, you can also rent a car for the weekend.
