Turn left onto Leslie Road and park behind the baseball field.

A trail departs 70 from a post in the NE corner of the lot, which is behind left-center field. There are lots of interesting little signs describing these unique woods, and you would be served by reading them as you pass through. Take the boardwalk and cross the creek and go left when the trail forks.
