Directions to Chaparral Ranch: 

From Interstate 680 or 880, take the Calaveras Road exit in Milpitas. From Hwy 101, take the Alviso/Milpitas exit,  and merge onto CA-237 East. When the road divides, stay towards the right and pick up Calaveras Road. Drive east on Calaveras Road towards the hills.

From the stop sign at the bottom of the hills, continue driving straight up hill. Bear right when the road splits. Continue on Calaveras Road as you pass through the southern section of Ed Levin Park. Slow down when you see Spring Valley Golf Course on your left. Just past the golf course you will see Airpoint School. Take the first left immediately after the school - it is an unnamed road, marked by a small sign that reads “Spring Valley Maintenance Facility.”

Continue on this paved utility road until the very end - you will see the golf course through a chain link fence on your left - it dead ends at Chaparral.
