Driving Directions


 

    Our gravel road, Observatory Way, will probably not show up on GPS systems or on search engines like MapBlast or MapQuest.  However Wildwood Ave should show up, which is the road the observatory is off of.  If this doesn't work, the fire station is located at 1777 Manzanita Ave for reference.

 

From Downtown Chico:

    Take E 1st Ave east (towards highway 99).

    After the freeway, follow the left curve onto Mariposa Ave (there is a street light here).

    Take a right onto East Ave.

    Road name changes to Manzanita Ave.

    Take a left onto Wildwood Ave (just after the fire station).

    Take a left onto Observatory Way (gravel road, opposite road for golf course).

    You're at the Observatory!

   

 

From South of Chico:

    Take highway 99 N towards Chico.

    Get off the highway at CA-32 exit (should be 3rd exit for Chico).

    Keep right on CA-32.

    Turn left on Bruce Rd (~11/2 mi).

    Road name changes to Manzanita Ave.

    Take a right onto Wildwood Ave (just before the fire station).

  

 

From North of Chico:

    Take highway 99 S towards Chico.

    Get off the highway at East Ave. exit (should be 2nd exit for Chico).

    Take a left onto Wildwood Ave (just after the fire station).
