US 95 north to exit 19; turn left onto Center Street; turn left onto Route 1 (Post Road east); soon turn right onto Hull Highway;  the property is on the left (west) side of the road; located  a little north of Gray Rock Road, almost across from house #300 on the right.  


11/14/2005.  Parked in the entrance parking lot.  There is a short path heading into the interior to a stream and a shrub swamp area.  We could not get over the stream because it was too wide.  Turned left to walk along the stream to a small swampy area.  Headed over to Hulls Highway, turned left and returned to the parking lot and car.  Patrick L. Cooney.
