Driving instructions Sector access

Driving instructions:
You'll find Ylästö at the southwest corner of airport, south of kehä III. From the Ylästöntie(road) turn uphill to Hiidenkivenkuja(street).
Drive all the way to the end and PAST the TIILERI warehouse. Park your car behind the warehoue, away from the path. Anyway, don't block the traffic especially to the warehouse!!!
Buses # 51 and 55 run from Tikkurila towards Myyrmäki.
Bus # 650 departs from Helsinki railwaystation, platform 12 and all these buses have a stop nearby (named "Malminrajantie") on the Ylästöntie!
Check also Helsinki telephone catalogue page 80 (88-DI).
Sector access and more precise description:
From the parking area, take the leftmost path which winds thru the forest towards northwest and the fields. After circa 150 meters the path narrows, goes later on over a little stream and goes slightly uphill, which after you'll have to start to look for deviation to your left where the edge of forest and barn can be found.
The boulder walls are near the fields and close to the edge of forest and the above mentioned barn is just beside the Red sector's left side. The barn is also  faintly visible from Ylästöntie.
The walls are on private land so remeber these few quidelines;
DO NOT WALK ON THE FIELDS!
GATHER YOUR THRASH AND HAVE FUN!
