Getting to Socorro:
Socorro is located approximately 75 miles south of Albuquerque.
Take I-25 to exit 150. Head straight on to California. Make a right
on Bullock (Right before Smith's supermarket). Head straight until you
enter NMT campus. The street will turn into Olive Lane.
Getting to Etscorn Observatory:
Take Olive Lane (main road on campus) to Canyon Road. Turn on Canyon Road
heading west past the golf course. Make a right on Buck Wolfe Drive
(1st stop sign; before campus police) and veer left at the fork in the road (near golf driving range net).
This will be a dirt road (If you start going down a paved hill to warehouses,
you have missed the turn). Follow the dirt road to the observatory parking.
A map of directions is available here
Note: There are signs posted starting on the intersection of Olive Lane and Canyon
