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 Road.
