Travel directions: 

Driving Directions: Wawayanda State Park Overflow Group Site parking area. From the south/east. Take Route 23 north to Union Valley Road. Follow Union Valley Road about 6 miles to a stop sign. Continue through the stop sign, and proceed, still on Union Valley Road, to the second traffic light. Turn left at the light, (I think it’s still Union Valley Road, but not well indicated as such) and continue approximately 2 miles to a fork in road. Take the left fork; in about 1/2 mile the road makes a T intersection with Warwick Turnpike. Turn left onto Warwick Turnpike. The park entrance is four miles ahead on the left, and is well marked.

In the park: Drive up the park driveway, and past the visitor center/park headquarters building (tell the toll-taker that you are with the trail crew, and you will not have to pay the fee). Continue into the park on the main park road for approximately 1 mile, to the first available left turn. Turn left onto that road (unnamed, but there is a sign for the Wawayanda Furnace). Proceed on that road until you reach the Furnace and an open field. Turn left over a small bridge, and then follow the road around to the left until it ends at the Overflow Group Site.

From the west/north: Take Rt. 94 to Warwick Turnpike (north of Vernon NJ and south of Warwick NY)--it's a right turn if you're traveling north from Vernon. Continue on Warwick Turnpike until you see the park entrance on your right. Drive up the park driveway and follow the In the Park directions above,
