From the south, west, north, or northeast, follow route 13? to the intersection of 366 at TreeForms Furniture, near NYSEG (this is about 4-5 miles east of downtown Ithaca) and go west on 366 for 100m.? Turn left onto Baker Hill Rd, which goes straight up in the air…? Climb steeply for about a mile until you come to the only intersection on the road. At the stop sign turn right onto Mt. Pleasant Rd. Go exactly .7miles (west). A power line will cross the road over the end of a dirt driveway (#226).? Follow that driveway to your right and park? on the right.

From the southeast, follow route 79 into Ithaca. As you enter the city and prepare to drop down the hill, route 366 will merge from the right. Take the very sharp right turn onto 366 and follow it several miles along the edge of the Cornell campus (past the Orchards and Vet school). In the little town of Varna there is only one cross-road. It’s called Freese Rd on the left and Mt. Pleasant Rd to your right. “Autoworks” car repair is on the corner. Turn right onto Mt. Pleasant Rd and climb a little over a mile to the top. Look for the power line crossing the road and the driveway (#226) on your left. Park along the driveway.???????? Phone is (607) 277-0495
