Brayton drive runs immediately adjacent and parallel to the New Seward Highway on the East side of the highway. It is essentially a two lane, one-way frontage road going South to North.
The Chalet is on Brayton Drive between Huffman Road and O'Malley Road (it is visible from the highway).
Enter Brayton Drive from the Huffman / New Seward Highway circle on the East side of the highway.
The Chalet is on the right just after the dome driving range - look for a sign at the driveway to the Chalet. IF YOU MISS THE DRIVEWAY, YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE TO O'MALLEY AND COME BACK AROUND (an approximately 15 minute delay).
When exiting the Chalet, you must turn right and exit the area via O'Malley Road.
