Begin in Crosbyton, Texas (Fig. 1). Take U.S. 82 west 35 mi (56 km) to Lubbock. On the northeast side of Lubbock at the intersection of U.S. 82 (which is also U.S. 62 along this stretch of the road) and Loop 289, turn right (north) off of U.S. 82 and follow Loop 289 to the north and west. Cross over I-27/U.S. 84, and take the University Avenue exit. Stay on the frontage road and continue west, parallel to the loop. Cross University Avenue and continue west with the large Texas Instruments (TI) plant to the north (right). Just past the TI plant the road drops into Yellowhouse Draw. The Lubbock Lake site, is in the trees to the northwest, about 300 ft (100 m) away. On the floor of the draw, take the only paved road north (right). Follow it for 0.3 mi (500 m) as it curves to the left along the edge of the draw. A chain-link fence enclosing most of the trees becomes visible. This is Lubbock Lake.
