Please contact the reserve director if you need directions on how to gain access to the reserve.

Directions to Blue Oak Ranch Reserve:

 From the South: Take Highway 101 north to 680 north, and take the Alum Rock Avenue exit. Proceed east on Alum Rock Rd to Highway 130, the Mt Hamilton Road, and turn right. At this intersection check your odometer as you want to proceed on Mount Hamilton Road for exactly 6.7 miles. This is a narrow windy road, often with cyclists who have a death wish, so be cautious. At 6.7 miles there will be two gates on your left, and an old decrepit barn off in a field nearby. Turn left into the second of the two gates, ours is painted yellow with yellow fence and gate posts  as well as orange flagging. The gate code for all reserve locks is 1492.

At this point the road is dirt/gravel but very passable, so proceed for approximately 1.5 miles where you will reach a second locked gate This is actually the Reserve boundary, and the same gate code applies (1492). The gate needs to swing towards you so leave enough room. Proceed for another 2 miles and keep to the left at any road forks and it will lead to the reserve headquarters at the cedar barn with a green roof,  Unless you make other arrangements with staff, everyone must check in at the barn, deliver their signed waivers and receive instructions from either Mike or Jeff.

Always lock the gates behind you, and do not drive faster than 10 MPH.

 From Berkeley and NorCal: Find your way to Highway 880 south, and continue to Warren Ave./ Mission Blvd/262 exit to Highway 680 south (a newly constructed overpass as of 2008). Drive south towards San Jose on 680 for several miles and exit at Alum Rock Avenue. Turn left, or east towards the hills, and proceed through the small town and several lights until the road narrows to two lanes. Watch for the right hand merging turn onto Highway 130, and take the Mt Hamilton Road. Follow the directions above.
