We highly recommend flying into the San Jose Airport and arranging transportation on the Monterey Airbus Shuttle system. You can visit http://www.montereyairbus.com to book your transit directly to the Hidden Valley Campus. For those who prefer to rent a car, the directions are:

  • Hidden Valley is located exactly 11.2 miles east of Hwy 1 on the Carmel Valley Road (G-16) in Carmel Valley, California. Traveling east on G-16, Hidden Valley is located on the right side just past Ford Road. The campus entrance is distinguished by a hand-carved sign denoting Hidden Valley, An Institute of the Arts.
  • Traveling on Hwy 101 from the south, take the Monterey Peninsula exit in Salinas (called Sanborn Road) and follow it west (Sanborn Rd. becomes Blanco Road) to Hwy 68. Turn left onto Hwy 68 (west) and follow it about 9 miles until you see a sign for Laureles Grade (G-20) to Carmel Valley. Turn left onto G-20 and follow it until it ends (6 miles) at Carmel Valley Road (G-16). Turn left again and follow it to Hidden Valley (approx. 2 miles).
  • Traveling on Hwy 101 from the north, Take the Monterey Peninsula/Hwy 156 exit and follow it west about 5 miles where it will automatically put you onto Hwy 1
  • Traveling on Hwy 1, simply come to the Carmel Valley Road (G-16) (just south of Carmel) and once on the Carmel Valley Road, come out 11.2 miles.

Transportation and housing for that course is on your own. We will do our best to assist you if you have any questions or concerns about where to stay and how to get to the course. Please reach out to Rachel Knight at sforff@gmail.com.
