DIRECTIONS

GPS to Park:  If you prefer, you can use GPS to Ed Levin Park.  But, do not just enter Ed Levin Park, Milpitas.  Instead, try “Sandy Wool Lake, Milpitas”, or you can enter the coordinates to the exact meeting spot, 37.45661466877603, -121.8660076111054.  Please, if possible, have the directions below printed out.   Many pilots have tried GPS and ended up at the wrong part of the park and there is not much cell signal there.

From 101 heading South: About 27 miles south of San Francisco International Airport, Exit at Hwy 237 Milpitas / Alviso and head East.

Continue East on 237 about 9 miles to the exit for Calaveras Rd or Blvd. Calaveras Blvd will turn into E. Calaveras Rd. Continue on this east until it starts to wind into the hills.
