Take the Palisades Interstate Parkway to its northern terminus at the Bear Mountain Bridge and continue north on US 9W for 8.8 miles. About half a mile after passing a parking area marked with a blue sign, turn right onto Mountain Road. Immediately, turn right again and proceed through a very narrow underpass beneath US 9W (large vehicles may not fit in this underpass). Continue ahead for 0.2 mile to a parking area on the right side of the road, just before a locked gate.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
