From Espanola and Within Los Alamos County (Northern NM):
Take the Los Alamos Highway (Highway 502) past Highway 30 and up the main hill road (do not take the White Rock or Truck Route exit). You will pass Los Alamos airport and come to a “Y” when entering Los Alamos. To the left is Trinity Drive; to the right is Central Avenue. Either one will eventually get you to Diamond Drive. If you take the left leg, stay on Trinity until you reach the stoplight by Los Alamos Medical Center.
At Diamond Drive, take a right on Diamond and get on the left lane immediately. On your right you will see Los Alamos High School and on your left is the entrance to UNM Los Alamos. Turn left on University Drive, just past the grass field.
