Driving Landmarks: From Interstate 95 take Exit 1 in Rhode Island for Route 3. Go south on Route 3 for 1.8 miles and turn right onto Route 216 (High Street) in Ashaway. Go 0.2 miles and turn left onto Laurel Street/River Road. Go 1 mile to the bridge over the river above Potter Hill Dam and turn left to go over the bridge. Just beyond the bridge there is a single parking space on the side of the little garage, away from the bridge. If this parking space is in use you can also park at the end of Post Office Lane, a small dirt road, across Potter Hill Road, that leads north about 1/10 mile to a public parking area.
