Then turn north on to Hayes Road (it’s a left if you’ve come from Shoot Flying Hill, a right if you’ve come from Phinney’s Lane). #82 is on your right.  You may park in our semicircular driveway or if no room, along the left side of the woods on Hayes Road. (Be careful of possible poison ivy next to the woods!)
