  • Follow Route 336 as it winds through the towns of Crapo, Wingate, and Bishop’s Head (there aren’t official signs to signify which town you are in)

NOTE: During spring tides or flood tides the road to the center can be completely covered with water. If that is the case, it may be necessary for us to meet your group at the public boat landing in Crocheron. Once your group gets to Cambridge, it is imperative that you call the Karen Noonan Center staff to determine if you will be able to drive all the way in.
