DIRECTIONS TO THE PINE ISLAND LAUNCH SITE:

  

(From the Challenger Center it will take about 45 - 50 minutes)

Take the NY Thruway to Exit 16 (Harriman/Woodbury Commons)
Continue on Route 17 West (Route 6) until Exit 123
Take Exit 123 and continue on Route 17M West for 3.4 miles
Make a left at the traffic light onto Route 12 (you will see "Soons Orchard" signs at the intersection area)
Continue on Route 12 straight through the next intersection

and at the "Y" bear to the left (still on Route 12)
Take Route 12 for 6.2 miles  

(it will "feel" longer so watch your odometer)
Look for a "METRA Rocket Launch" sign on the left

and turn left onto a dirt road

(Sometimes the sign is missing so watch your odometer carefully)
Take the dirt road for about a mile and go over a small bridge  

with wooden planks on the roadbed
After crossing the bridge turn to the right and you will see the launch area straight ahead
