Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:
Take I 84 East to Exit 73. Turn right at end of ramp on to Route 190 N (Buckley Highway). Follow Route 190 North to Route 171 (Bigelow Hollow Road), East on right. Stay on Route 171 until you see park (on left). The park is listed with address Route 171 (275-285 Bigelow Hollow Road), Union, CT 06076. Try to car pool if possible, as there is a $9 per CT vehicle entrance fee ($15 for out-of-state).
Meet at the Bigelow Pond picnic area in the trailhead parking lot. There are four parking areas. This is NOT the first parking area at entrance of park from Route 171. Drive past first parking area and the boat launch (where there is small parking area) to next parking area on northern tip of Bigelow Pond. Do not drive past Bigelow Pond. The park roadway ends at the Mashapaug Pond Boat launch.
