From the Northway, take exit 25 Chestertown. Head south on Route 8 to Wevertown. At the traffic light, turn right onto Route 28. Drive through the towns of North Creek and North River, after which you will begin climbing a long hill. At its crest, look for Cleveland Road on the left. Turn onto this road and park immediately.

You will cross Raquette Brook and several low spots which may be wet in warm years, but no dangerous water.
