At the Tom Mays Unit of the park - Directions:
From Westside on I-10, take exit 6 & travel east towards mountains for 3.8 miles, Park entrance will be on the left. From Eastside on Hwy 54, exit Transmountain Rd, travel west 7-7.5 miles over/thru the mountains, Park entrance will be on the right. Due to the construction along hwy 375, the park no longer has any sign for the park entrance. A good point of reference or marker to assist you is the truck runaway ramp on the right side of the hwy as you travel West; as soon as you notice the ramp, begin looking for the slow down lane to turn right. Please use extra caution as you will need to slow down quickly and the slowdown lane is short.
