Head for the Whiteface Mountain Auto Road, bearing left just before the tollbooth area. Just past the small pond on the left where the road bends left is a trailhead for the short walk to the quarry.

The directions are incorrect. They should read:
From Wilmington, take the road up Whiteface Mtn. Just before the toll booth, bear RIGHT and drive another quarter mile or so to a nebulous pull-out on the right at a curve in the road. Look for an overgrown old roadbed leading off from the right side of the road. Approach takes about five minutes.
