5995Re: Directions to Mt. Cuba
- Dec 1, 2006Getting to Mount Cuba is not easy even using the maps that are on line.
(I will post the urls for these later in this message.)
You will be taking I95 into Wilmington and getting off at the Route 52
North exit. Take this until you come to Route 141 South and take that
until you come to the bottom of the hill and a stop light. That is
Barley Mill Road and you want to be in the Right lane to make the
right turn at the light. Stay on that road (drive carefully as the
road twists and turns and there is a lot of deer in the area) for 3.4
miles. At that point you will be at an intersection with "Mount Cuba
Road" so make the right on to it. Stay on this course for 0.8 miles
and you will get to the front gate of the observatory. If the gate is
closed just get out and open it as it is unlocked. Leave it open.
Note this road will make a left after you cross some railroad tracks
and a small bridge over a stream. Don't make the left continue on as
it becomes "Hillside Mill Road".
If you go in the other way the road is a bit more tricky and I suggest
this way and using milage to know when to turn.
