Parking can be found on the south end of the park, along the Warwick Turnpike. Small pull off lots can be found as you travel up the hill (up from the Warwick Turnpike/White Road intersection). The trail head is near the Warwick Turnpike/White Road intersection.

Another lot can be found at the top of the park. There is a small parking lot just south of the NJ/NY border off Lakeside Road/CR 511, across the street from a marina. This lot is shared by the marina patrons and can fill up. But that is about all you have in this area.
