The drive from San Francisco, Oakland, or Sacramento airports are each about 2.5 hours by car from Four Springs. If you are flying into SF, your flight will need to arrive by 10:30am in order to arrive at the site on time – this allows for any delays, luggage, rental car pick-up and any stops along the way.

Driving & Carpool Tips:

If you are flying from outside of California, please contact local participants to request a carpool, or plan to rent a car from the airport and perhaps share the rental with other out-of-state participants. Likewise, if you are a local participant, please contact your peers to also set up carpools, if needed. Here is a link to the carpool forum to coordinate your needs. It is your responsibility to know how long it will take to drive to the site from your location, and allow enough time for your arrival.
