Tips to avoid traffic:
Approach the Mission or the El Camino High School parking lot directly from Rancho del Oro, this road dead ends into the main driveway. There are many ways to reach Rancho del Oro: from I-5 you can take Oceanside Blvd. East and from Mission Ave. you can take Mesa Drive East.
Approach the Mission by driving West on Mission Ave and park in the Parish Parking Lots at 4070 Mission Ave, this allows you to avoid the left turn into the Old Mission.
