Enter Colt State Park and follow the road over the bridge and along the water.
Park at the large lot by picnic sites 1-7. Take the trail past the wooden gate, then take your first left. Follow this trail until you reach the tree marking the blue and yellow trails. Once at the tree, stay right on the Yellow trail. Cross a stone wall, stay left at a fork in the trail, then pass through one of the tallest stone walls I've seen.
Continue to follow this trail for another minute, you will pass a many-trunked tree with a small trail on the right. Follow this game trail past a few holes, until it makes a sharp right turn down the hill. There is a row of rocks on the right, Saturn is under one of the first ones, behind a stone and some sticks.
