From Albany: take 87 South to exit 20, turn left off the exit, go one block and turn right onto 212, then follow 212 until you hit Woodstock, then follow below.
2. After 10 or 12 miles you’ll hit downtown Woodstock. In the center of downtown Woodstock there is a small green area with benches. Zero out your mileage counter there — you’ve got about 7 miles to go.
3. Continue on 212 West through town. VERY IMPORTANT — about 2.5 miles along, in Bearsville, 212 takes a right turn while route 45 is straight. The sign is confusing and seems to indicate a right turn that is too early. Take the SECOND right just over the little bridge to stay on 212. You’ll immediately see a post office and a sign confirming you’re still on 212. Around dusk and at night watch for critters! The road is busy with deer, beavers, squirrels, and hippies.
4. Follow 212 thru Shady and Lake Hill. After 4 or 5 winding miles you’ll see a sign for Willow. When you pass the white church you’re exactly 6/10 mile from Van Wagner Road. The sign for Van Wagner is small but it’s easy to spot because there is a flagstone/bluestone dealer and a car repair place at the intersection. Also there’s a big sign for the Willow Post Office. At night it’s easy to spot because it’s one of the few streetlamps. Turn right on Van Wagner and you’ll see a big field and barns on the left. The entrance is 35 Van Wagner, second driveway on the left.
