Travel on Rte. 132 W for 10 miles from Rte. 5 in Pompanoosuc Village. You will be following the Ompompanoosuc River on your left as it twists and turns NW with you. As you come over the bridge into South Strafford, bear right to stay on Rte. 132. Travel through the small downtown of South Strafford and continue on the same road into Strafford. (Do not turn left when the Rte. 132 goes left up the hill to Sharon; instead bear slightly right to take Justin Morrill Memorial Highway into Strafford.) When you reach the Strafford Common, stay to your right and travel approximately 1 mile. Next, turn right onto Old City Falls Branch. Travel 7/10s of a mile (go left at the Y to stay on Old City Falls instead of going right on Pennock Rd), and stop at the parking area on your left.
