Driving Directions to Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs (GYHS)
We're in the hills just east of Gilroy. Find Gilroy (on Hwy 101, were Hwy 152 intersects)

From Hwy 101
in Gilroy:

(allow 25 minutes       
driving time
at 35 mph)
Exit LEAVESLEY AVENUE, East  (pass the Outlet Stores, away from Hwy 101. If you cross the railroad tracks, you went the wrong way).
Right on ROOP ROAD
    Stay on this road to the end! 
   You will pass: Harvey Bear Ranch,
                         Coyote Reservoir,
                         Canada Rd -- follow the LEFT road,
                         (CalFire/CDF is on the corner of Canada Rd.)
                         Hunting Hollow -- three more miles to go
Cross the green trestle  bridge and wait for someone to meet you to check you in, unlock & open the gate.
Drive 1 more mile to the picnic and camping area.

From Los Banos
and the
Central Valley
On Hwy 152, continue straight onto LEAVESLEY AVENUE (instead of turning left to go to Hwy 101.
just after the curve, turn Right on NEW AVENUE
Right on ROOP ROAD, and continue to the end (see directions above).
Note:  Yes, you could take a right on Leavesley Road before the curve -- it winds through another canyon and eventually ends where Canada Rd meets Old Hot Springs Road. Turn Right at the end of Canada Rd.  It's longer, slower, narrow, lots of curves and scenic.

Driving more
than 1 hour?
Consider stopping at the Outlet Stores restrooms before heading up the hill, and after the event.
We'll have a couple of chemical toilets at GYHS....
