Travel directions: 

Driving Directions: The Appalachian Trail parking lot on Rt. 94 north of Vernon. Get yourself to the center of Vernon, on Rt. 94. (We do that as follows: take Rt. 23 west approximately 15 miles from I-287. After passing ‘Canistear Road’ start watching for Rt. 515 – this is a turnoff just before the traffic light. (Rt. 515 starts at Rt. 23). Follow Rt. 515 to the center of Vernon, where Rte. 94 joins you at the light.) Once in Vernon, continue north on the co-aligned 515 & 94 for about 2.5 miles. The AT parking lot is on the right(there is a small sign). If you reach Heaven Hill Farm, you've gone too far.
