Directions to the
and Research Forest*
From the North (Ithaca):
Take NY Route 13 South
(toward Elmira) from Ithaca. Approximately 4 miles from the intersection
of Routes 13, 34, and 96, turn left at the intersection of Route 13 and
Trumbulls Corners Road just before the Newfield Post Office. Turn right
on Main Street at the “T”. Take the first left past the People’s
Baptist Church, onto VanKirk Road. Proceed approximately 4 miles, bear
to the left at the Irish Hill Road intersection. Travel 3 miles to the
steep driveway on the right, just before the gate to the Arnot Forest
(also on the right). Follow the driveway to the lodge.
From the Southwest (Elmira, Horseheads):
NY Route 13 North (toward Ithaca) from Horseheads, turning right onto
NY 224 at Alpine Junction. Proceed approximately 6 miles, turn left on
County Route #13 and proceed 1.4 miles to the steep camp driveway on the
left, just after the gate to the Arnot Forest (also on the left). Follow
the driveway to the lodge.
From the Southeast (Binghamton, NY and I-81):
Take NY Route 17 West to exit 61 in Waverly, NY. Turn north (left) onto
NY Rte 34 towards Van Etten. In Van Etten, Rte 34 makes a "T"
intersection with Rt. 224 north (left) towards Cayuta and Alpine. Turn
left towards Cayuta and Alpine. About 4 miles north and west of Van Etten,
just after crossing in Schuyler County, turn right (north) onto County
Rt. 13 (this is not NY Rt. 13). Go north for 1.2 miles and when you reach
the second bridge you've reached the Arnot Forest on your left. The gated
road is the "south gate" and goes into the forest. The road
up the steep hill beside the mailbox goes into the field campus.
