Travel directions: 
We will be parking at the parking area for the future trailhead.  The parking area is located at the end of Lane Street.  From the village of Phoenicia follow Bridge Street over the Esopus River.  After crossing the river, turn right on to High Street.  Follow High Street for approximately 0.5 miles. Lane Street will be on your left.  Turn on to Lane Street and follow it to the end.  The parking area's access road is to the right at the end of the road and the parking area is located just over a small stream crossing at the end of that short access road.
