As you get near the Parking area, Park Rangers and volunteers will direct you to your parking spot in the Recreation Field near the Wilder Tower (unless it has been determined that the field is too muddy for parking). If alternate parking is necessary, signs will direct you to parking at Oakwood Baptist Church. If parking is in the recreation field, you will walk to the event staging area in the field below Wilder Tower, approximately .4 miles or a 10 minute walk. If alternate parking has been used, you will be taken to and from the registration/staging area by bus, approximately 4 miles away.
