Long Description:
This AL. disk is set in a levee, adjacent to a witness post, and is approximately 40 feet NNW from the NW entrance to the 373-acre Ravenswood Open Space Preserve (Formerly known as the Cooley Landing Salt Pond) in Menlo Park, California.
The disk can be reached by heading east on the Bayfront Expressway (I-84) from the junction of I-84 and University Avenue in East Palo Alto and taking the Ravenswood SF Bay National Wildlife Refuge exit. The parking lot road parallels the freeway for about 1/3 mile before crossing under the bridge approach's roadbed. This is so you can return back to Palo Alto without having to cross the bridge.

After exiting the freeway, stop at the Baylands information stand and read about the history of the wetlands. From there, proceed about 1100 feet ENE to the marker which lies approximately 40 feet from the edge of the roadway.
