If you come from the OHV Area, you can legally cross the highway, but not travel on the right of way.

A dirt trail parallels the highway on the north side; cross over to any of the community roads. Remember to take it easy, watch out at blind corners.

If you come up Larrea Road, travel alongside it, off the pavement. Plenty of parking at the Center.
