Click here for Google map and directions. Go about a half-mile beyond the point indicated in the Google map (which is actually the park headquarters office) ... you'll know you're in the right place when you see a big open parking area with an elevated railroad trestle.  Park in this area.  The race starts on the edge of the lake, on the right side of the spillway as you're facing it from the parking lot.
