Detailed Guide for Bernal Road:

The first two miles of Bernal Road are straight and flat, running through suburban housing and commercial areas. Then, after passing the Santa Teresa Golf Course on your left, the road narrows to two lanes and winds up, over a large hill. IBM Research - Almaden is located atop the hill at the end of this road. Keep going straight. You will eventually see a small IBM sign and then the entry gate.

At the entry gate, press the button to announce who you are visiting.

At the stop sign continue straight ahead. Park to the left in a visitor's space in the first parking lot you come to, then walk across the entry circle into the lobby and sign in with the receptionist.
