Directions to Weapons Training Battalion, Quantico

From north of Quantico:  We are located on the West side of I-95.  Take I-95 South to Exit 148.  At the stop sign turn right onto Russell Road and proceed about 1 mile.  You will reach a checkpoint manned by USMC MPs.  Continue on past the check point.  Russell Rd becomes MCB 1.  Stay on MCB 1 for about 3 miles. You will pass a fire station on your left at about the 1.5 mile mark. You’ll hit a 35 MPH zone as the road turns to the left and then see a water tower ahead on the right hand side of the road.  Continue past the water tower and make a right about 1/4 mile after the water tower.  That is Garand Rd; if you go back into a 45 MPH zone or see FBI Academy signs, then you’ve gone too far.  Go down the hill to the stop sign make a right and then another immediate right into our parking lot.  Pavilion is directly ahead on the right hand side.  Park in any open spaces on that end of the parking lot.
