A sign at the corner of 1900E and 500N (labeled Franklin Kenyon Preserve) marks the entrance to Kenyon-Baller Woods. A grass parking lot lies 300 feet west of this entrance sign. Park here and walk 0.3 miles west down the gravel lane until it ends at a green double gate.
Access the trails by walking around either end of the green gate on your right.
