From Allentown

  1. Go to South 4th Street in Allentown and head south.
  2. Head up South Mountain to the traffic light at the crest of the hill. This is Rock Road.  
  3. Turn left onto Rock Road and head east, up the hill.
  4. Drive 1 mile until you get to the top of the hill, where you'll see a small open area on the right with a paved driveway and a (rather obvious) mailbox with 'AT&T' on it. Turn right onto the driveway.
  5. About 100 feet before you reach a chain-link fence gate, you'll see a gravel driveway branching off to the left, into the woods. This is our driveway.
  6. Take this driveway right to the LVAAS parking lot!
