From I-580: Take the Vasco Road exit and head south. Where Vasco Road ends at Tesla, take a right. Next light is Mines Road; take the left. (There are alternative ways to get to this corner, which work fine.)

From CA-84 East (from I-680 or crossing the Dumbarton Bridge and through Fremont): After exiting from or crossing under I-680, turn right on Vallecitos. Right to Concannon (slightly hidden signage), right where Concannon ends at South Livermore Ave. Right onto Mines Road at the light. Watch the mile markers along the road - they start from zero at this corner.

One tricky part: Mines Road continues with a left turn around mile marker 3.5 (toward San Jose/Mt Hamilton). (If you continue straight, you'll end up at Del Valle Regional Park - a lovely spot - but one hill away from us.) You will lose cell phone service somewhere soon after this left turn.

We're on the right at 12465 Mines Road, mile marker 8.79 with the black mailbox that says "Rancho Milagro". Use the gate code to enter, and drive straight for 0.3 miles to the house.

Reminder: Wear long pants, close-toed shoes for exploring the 182 acres. Bring bathing suits to enjoy the swimming pool, if the weather is warm.
