Get directions or follow ours: From Route 1, turn north onto Dunns Corner Road. Take a right on Moorehouse Road after about 1.4 miles. The road is not fully paved. Pass the ball fields on your right and look for the entrance to the preserve on your left. Please park well within the preserve, about 400 feet down the driveway once you pass the Wahaneeta Preserve sign. There is absolutely no parking on the dirt road before you reach the sign as this is private property.
