You have to watch closely for the signs along Route 8 just West of the small Adirondack Town of Chestertown.
The narrow, paved road twists and turns about 2 miles up into the mountains from the main road.
On a clear day you can see forever or at least to the Gore Mountain Ski Area some 14 road miles to the West.
You know you are getting close as you begin passing cars parked along one side of the road for at least a half mile out.
