Alum Rock, San Jose

Wednesday, June 16, 1999 (Practice Session)

For this South Bay practice, we return to San Jose's Alum Rock Park for our second-ever orienteering meet there. The non-standard map is sure to challenge your map-reading skills, but the all-trail course will be suitable to orienteerers at all levels.

We'll meet at the main parking lot at 6 PM. Please allow extra time to get there as traffic gets pretty slow coming through San Jose during rush hour.


To get to Alum Rock Park, take 101, I-280 or I-680 and exit onto Alum Rock Avenue. Go east on Alum Rock Ave. and follow it all the way to the end, where it turns into the access road to the park. Turn left at the kiosk at the bottom of the canyon and park in either of the two lots ahead.
